This super thin and long veggie i.e drumstick hasn’t appeared in this space till now just because I never even knew that it tastes so much good. Drumstick is one of those nutrient rich veggies which I am deprived off for so many years of my food life. It wasn’t a staple food in my childhood and my mom never buys it even today. So drumstick was totally a mystery till the fine day when I cooked it all by myself. Brinjal drumstick curry is the debut recipe of this pretty thin drumstick in this pretty good food blog.
In my trip to vegetable shop, randomly I chose a pile of drumstick thinking it could be transformed in to a delicious curry unknowing what other veggie could become a best match with it. You know, in a food blog mindset I keep introducing new veggies and fruits in the food that I cook everyday. Surprised at my new vegetable chosen, my husband said, if you are planning to make curry out of it then brinjal could be the best match. And thus few brinjal accompanied to finish of my vegetable shopping.
Brinjal drumstick curry is so very simple just like any other but this power packed vegetable takes the curry to next level. Seriously, the moment I have started my food journey with drumstick, I am loving it. It’s been part of our weekend lunch since 2 to 3 months now.
I prepared the curry using pigeon pea lentils, tamarind, jaggery, salt and chillies which is topped with Udupi sambar powder. You can use any curry powder or sambar powder that is in stock.
