BM #116 Day 6 - 

Here is an everyday thali with a different set of dishes. 

Featured here are Beetroot Sabji, Instant Dhaniyala Sambar, Drumstick Coconut Milk Curry, Rice, Yogurt and Vadiyalu (Sun dried fritters). 

Typically We don't make any chutney or rasam if sambar is in the menu. Whereas in my mom's place, sambar, rasam, chutney and sabji are all part of the menu.

Ingredients - 

Drumsticks, 2 inch pieces 1 1/2 cups
Salt, Turmeric, Garam Masala and Red Chili Powder as needed
Seasoning (Cooking Oil 1 Tbsp, Mustard seeds 1 tsp, Cumin Seeds 1 tsp, Curry leaves few)
For the Gravy - 
Onions , finely chopped 1/2 cup
Tomatoes, finely chopped 1 cup
Ginger, grated 1 tsp
Green Chilies 2-3 (or as needed)
Coconut Milk 1 cup

Method Of Preparation -

In a saucepan boil 2 cups of water and set it to rolling boil. Add the drumsticks, 1/2 a teaspoon of salt and a pinch of turmeric. 

Cover and allow the drumsticks to cook. It takes about 10 minutes.

While the drumsticks are boiling, in a different heated pan add oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves.

After the mustard seeds pop, add the finely chopped onions, grated ginger and green chili paste.

Saute the onions until they are golden brown. Add in the tomatoes and allow them to become mushy.

Transfer the boiled drumsticks into the simmering onion tomato gravy. Add the water used to boil the drumsticks as well.

Sprinkle salt, turmeric, red chili powder and garam masala to taste and let the flavors blend well.

After the gravy comes together, pour in about a cup of coconut milk and allow the curry to come to a boil. Adjust the flavors if needed and remove from heat.

  2. I love all Curries prepared with coconut milk. This is a new curry for me.

  3. Suma Gandlur Says:
  4. This version munaga koora is new to me as well but love that it has gravy. I hate the other dry versions where you get to eat only the drumsticks which is not much to root for.

  5. We are very fond of drumsticks and I am always on a lookout for new recipes .
    This recipe is almost as we make - one of the versions , but the coconut milk is what makes it different . A must try for my hubby who lives everything with coconut milk , like Rajani 🥰

  6. Srivalli Says:
  7. We also don't make chutneys on regular days when Sambar is on the menu, so much work right..hahaha..actually when I think about it, on regular days when I make this drumstick masala, we only like this. On the whole, this thali with all the dishes looks so inviting!

  8. Narmadha Says:
  9. Drumstick coconut milk looks so delicious. we always use coconut as such in drumstick curry. Next time going to try adding coconut milk.

  10. Srividhya Says:
  11. I am all up for dishes with coconut milk and this sounds absolutely yum. Bookmarking it. And thali is amazing. Typical thali is all with these kind of assorted dishes only.

  12. cookwithrenu Says:
  13. I use drumstick in sambar or make a dry veggie from it. This looks like an interesting recipe with it and will go well with rice or roti.
