Murungai kai poriyal/ Drumstick Stirfry

During my last trip to India, I had a chance of enjoying fresh drumstick at least twice a week. On top of it, my mother-in-law went to her native, and came back with a good load of fresh drumstick leaves and drumsticks. Of course, drumstick  is a king for sambar, but it would start boring after some time. Hence I prepared this poriyal one day. Its actually a quick and simple dish and tastes heavenly if you are using fresh and tender drumsticks.

Fresh Drumsticks -3
Shallots - 12
Curry powder- 11/2teaspoon
Turmeric powder-1/8teaspoon
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Channa dal & Urad dal - 1 teaspoon each
Grated coconut - 1tablespoon

Wash and cut the drumstick into 3" pieces. Chop the shallots.
Heat oil in a pan, make the tempering with mustard seeds, channa & urad dals. Add in the shallots, quick for a few minutes.
Then add the chopped veggie with turmeric powder and salt.
Add a cup of water and close the pan. 
Add the curry powder when the veggie is 3/4th done. 
Mix it well and cook till the water evaporates.
Finally add the grated coconut, mix it with the veggie and put off the flame.
Quick and tasty drumstick stir-fry is ready. Goes well with white rice/ rasam rice /curd rice.
