Key Notes:

  1. You can adjust spice level as per your taste.
  2. You can also add tomatoes to it. Chop 2 medium sized tomatoes and add to the mixture after roasting all the spices. Once tomatoes are soft and mushy then add chopped drumsticks and cook as given in recipe.
  3. Don’t add too much water while cooking drumstick and don’t overcook them otherwise they will be mushy.
