1 tsp mustard seeds
¼ sp asafoetida powder

You can add finely chopped brinjal too this is optional





METHOD;

Peel and cut drumsticks into 11/2 inch pieces.
Heat oil in a vessel and add mustard seeds, when they splutter add methi seeds asafetida and drumstick pieces and cook with one-cup water for 10 mins or till the time the drumsticks become soft.
Grind together coconut, chilli powder, garam, masala powder, haldi powder, and tamarind together with little water to a rough paste.
Add the paste to the cooked drumsticks and add water till it becomes a bit watery not too much the paste should stick to the drumsticks.
