Drumstick masala curry

Drumsticks are widely used in so many dishes especially in South India.I usually add drumsticks in sambar and if i have fresh drumsticks available in Indian market then i go for the curry.Here iam posting drumstick curry cooked with few spices.This is one of our favorite vegetable.My kids love it.

Drum stick plant possesses unique nutritional qualities that holds many supplements such as protein,minerals,and vitamins.Leaves are an excellent source of protein that can rarely found in any other herbs and green leafy vegetable.Iam posting this recipe in BM#42 under the theme "South Indian Meals".Here goes my recipe.
