drumstick poricha kuzhambu

Murungakai poricha kuzhambu/ poricha kootu is one of the easiest and delicious gravy for rice which I learnt from my MIL.Whenever i feel lazy to cook, i make this gravy alone for rice. I don’t make any poriyal or kootu.We have the drumstick itself as side dish.I just make a thogayal along with this gravy and we have a hearty meal with papad or vadam.

  • Drumstick –2 nos
  • Moong dal – 1/4 cup
  • Sambar powder – 2 tsp

METHOD
  • Chop the drumstick pieces into finger size.Slit it half way through..
  • In a cooker base take the moong dal with required water.Add 1/4tsp of turmeric powder and a drop of oil.Take a small bowl that fits inside the cooker. In that bowl , put the chopped drumstick pieces.Add very little water (say 2 tbsp).The drumstick pieces gets cooked in the steam itself..Pressure cook for one whistle in low flame.( I use the same technique for cooking dal & vegetables for sambar. )
