Drumstick Porichcha Kulambu 


This is another major variation on Drumstick Curry, it is a gravy based curry made out of drumstick being fried first.


Drumstick 500 Gms
Onion 1 medium
Curry powder 3 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Tamarind paste 1 teaspoon
Coconut Milk 4 cups
Oil for frying
Water as necessary


The drumstick must be very tender and thin so they fry easily.

Clean and wash the drumsticks and cut into pieces of 8 cm long.

Fry these drumstick pieces in oil in a pan until they turn light brown.

Drain and remove and put them on an absorbent paper so excess oil is removed.

In a cooking pot, fry diced onion in a teaspoon of oil until it turns golden.

Then place the fried drumstick, and add curry powder, salt and tamarind paste and one cup water.

Bring to boil and gently stir until the smell of raw curry powder is gone.

Now add the coconut milk slowly and stir.

Bring it boil.

Check the taste and remove from fire.

You can garnish before you remove for additional flavour.
