This drumstick curry is completely a Kerala style traditional recipe. It is very easy and simple recipe to make at home. We can make different curries with the combination of drumstick such as drumstick with tomato and drumstick with Lentil. Drumstick has a lot of health benefits and it will be available in south and north India. It will be available in almost all houses in Kerala. Keralites are using drumstick as the main ingredients of sambar and Aviyal. Drumsticks are there in market at any time and its price is little bit high comparing other vegetable. It is an excellent combination with hot rice for lunch and dinner. Drumstick mainly will be available in the month of March, April, May and June. I have used very fresh and natural drumstick to make this curry which was there in my home. To get more taste and thickness I have used mashed potato this curry.
