DRUMSTICK MILK CURRY: GUEST POST BY SHANKARI RAMANAN

DRUMSTICK MILK CURRY: GUEST POST BY SHANKARI RAMANAN
I intend posting guest posts from time to time. This, I believe, will greatly add to the variety of dishes featured in this blog. It is in this spirit that I post today a recipe received from my friend, Shankari Ramanan, who is highly enthusiastic about cooking. 
I really appreciate the interest shown by a number of friends to have their guest posts featured. This will be done over a period of time, retaining a balance between my own posts and guest posts.
Go ahead and enjoy her contribution which she says has become a favourite in her house: Drumstick Milk Curry.
Ingredients-
  • Drumsticks, 2
  • Onions,  finely cut, 2
  • Tomatoes,  chopped, 2
  • Green chillies,  2
  • Few curry leaves
  • Coriander
  • Salt, to taste
  • Sambhar Powder, 2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder
  • Oil, 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds
  • Milk, 1/2 cup
Method:
First, heat the pressure pan and add 2 tea spoons of oil. When it heats up, add mustard seeds. Once it splutters, add curry leaves and green chilli. Then add finely cut onion and sauté till golden brown. Add chopped tomatoes. Let it cook till all the moisture has evaporated.
Add the cut drumsticks to the above preparation, along with sambhar powder, salt and turmeric powder. Add milk (use the cream of the milk as well to make it more delicious!). Close the pressure pan and cook upto 2 whistles. Open when the steam has cooled down.
