Drumsticks in Masala Gravy

2 Fresh Drumsticks or frozen packet
2 Onions
2 Tomatoes
2 Green chilies
Ginger-garlic paste
½ cup grated coconut powder
2 tsp Tamarind pulp
1 tsp Garam masala
2 tsp gasa gasa - Poppy seeds

Cut drumsticks into 3” pieces.

Grind chopped onions, cut tomatoes, grated coconut, jeera, 1 red chili and gasa gasa into a coarse paste.

Take 4 tsp of oil in a low bottom skillet and add chopped green chilies and ginger-garlic paste, then add the ground paste, garam masala and fry till it is nicely done and aroma fills the room. Add a cup of water to make nice, thick gravy.

Add the drumsticks, salt turmeric and fry them for two minutes on a medium flame with the lid on. Once the drumsticks are soft enough add tamarind pulp and cook for a few minutes. Do not overcook, drumsticks will lose their shape.
Taste for salt and adjust seasonings. More oil can be added according to taste.
Garnish with chopped coriander.

This is a good side dish with hot rice.
