drumstick curry recipe | mulakkada curry | drumstick sabji | shevga bhaji with detailed photo and video recipe. a unique tasty south indian curry or sabzi recipe made with fresh drumstick in a spicy and creamy curry. it shares a similar curry base as eggplant with a combination of peanuts, sesame seeds and dry coconut. it is an ideal alternative to the drumstick based sambar recipe and can be easily shared with either rice or chapathi or any types of bread.
mulakkada currydrumstick curry recipe | mulakkada curry | drumstick sabji | shevga bhaji with step by step photo and video recipe. south indian curry is generally multipurpose and is not dedicated to just roti or rice. this is mainly due to the flexibility with the staple food as rice and roti are equally embraced across all the states. hence most of the vegetables are prepared in both sambar and curries variations and the drumstick is no exception to it.

as i was explaining, the curry base is very similar to the ennegayi recipe or the gutti vankaya curry. basically, it is prepared with a combination of peanuts, dry coconut, sesame seeds and garam masala with a topping of onions and tomato. this yields a creamy curry base which is generally stuffed in between the choice of vegetables. but for this recipe, we do not stuff it but boil it with a curry base with more water. this helps to cook the drumsticks but also absorbs all the flavour and spice inside them. hence it makes one of the tasty mulakkada curry compared to the types of drumstick sambar recipes.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the drumstick curry recipe. firstly, the drumsticks have to be tender and fresh and avoid using frozen which are generally dry with no moisture in them. also, try to use a small-sized drumstick for this curry so that the spice flavour can easily reach the centre part of it. secondly, once the curry is prepared, try to rest it for a minimum of 30-60 mins so that the flavour is fully absorbed by the vegetable. as matter of fact, it tastes better when you serve it the next day. lastly, you may follow the same curry base and use any choice of vegetable to prepare the curry. the ideal combination of vegetables are potatoes, radish, whole tomatoes and even pumpkin.
