Drumstick Kura

2 Fresh Drumsticks or frozen packet
Few Curry Leaves
¼ cup Raw Rice
½ cup grated Coconut Powder
4 tsp Sesame Seeds
2 Red Chilies
½ tsp Jeera

Cut drumsticks into 3” pieces.

Soak rice in water for 2 – 3 hours. Grind rice, coconut, sesame seeds, ½ tsp jeera and 2 red chilies to a smooth batter. Keep aside.

Take 4 tsp of oil in a low bottom skillet and make tadka with ½ tsp mustard seeds, ½ tsp jeera, hing and curry leaves.

Add cut drumsticks, salt and turmeric and cook till they are soft gently stirring. (So that shape of the vegetables is not lost.) Then add the ground paste and cook in medium/low flame till the oil seperates.

The water given out by the vegetables will be absorbed by the ground paste and once the dish is thickening remove from flame.

This is a good side dish with hot rice.
