Drumstick leaves curry

This is a very delicious and healthy curry which is served with rice!


2 cups drumstick leaves
1/3 cup chana dal
1/2 cup onions (finely chopped)
2-3 green chillies (slit length wise)
2 tsp tamarind pulp (optional)
1/3 cup grated fresh coconut
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp urad dal
a dash of asafoetida
salt to taste
2 tsp oil


Clean the leaves by removing the stems carefully since the stems do not digest very easily. Wash and pressure cook the leaves for one whistle. Wash and cook the chana dal in one cup of water till its soft.
In a pan heat oil and temper with mustard seeds, urad dal, asafoetida and green chillies.
To this add onions and fry till golden. Add drumstick leaves, coconut, chana dal and salt and cook on low heat till all the flavors blend together. You can add tamarind pulp if you want the curry to be little tangy. Cook till the miosture dries up and serve warm with rice!
