Drum sticks with potatoes curry

Hello friends! Today I bring you another one of our traditional recipes.This recipe does not require onion, garlic or tomato but now a  days everyone modifies to their taste. I, however, has retained the recipe as it is. So here goes simple, easy and tasty drumstick dish my way.


  • 4 drumsticks
  • 2 potatoes
  • 3tbsp gram flour
  • 2-3 green chillies
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp tamarind water
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste
  • water as required
  • coriander leaves to garnish


Soak tamarind for few mins and squeeze to take out juice of tamarind. Keep it aside. 
Peel, wash and chop potatoes in medium sized cubes. Remove the outer layer of drumsticks and chop into 2 inch pieces.
Boil both the vegetables  taking care not to make drumstick mushy.
In a bowl, mix gram flour, dry spices and tamarind water. Make sure there are no lumps in it.
Heat oil in the pan and add cumin seeds. Once they splutter add chopped green chillies. Saute for a min and then add the tamarind water with gram flour and roast it for few mins Add boiled potatoes and drumsticks and add water accordingly. Boil it for few mins till gravy thickens.  Do not over boil as vegetables are already tender.

Drumstick sabzi goes well with roti or chapati.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve..

Hope you liked this dish.
