Drumstick Dal

Day 2 of Delicious Dals, I am going to serve you Drumstick Dal. As a kid , I hated this Dal whenever mom used to make it. But now I kind of developed the taste for this yummy Dal. the best combination is with Poondu Vatha kulambu. Slurp. Had it a couple of days ago, but the taste is still lingering in my mind.


Drumstick - 2 cut into 1 inch pieces
Toor Dal - 1 cup
Red chili powder - 2 tbsp
Onion - 1/2 cup thin slices
Oil - as required
Salt - as required
Mustard seeds and curry leaves for tempering 


Boil the drumstick in water till it is done
Pressure cook the Toor Dal and keep it separately
In a wok, heat oil and when it is hot, add the mustard seeds
After they sputters, add the sliced onions and curry leaves
Saute it for a minute and then add red chili powder and salt
Add the boiled drumstick with the water in which it was boiled
Followed by cooked Toor Dal.
Let it boil well and reduce to form a semi solid consistency
Serve with Vatha kulambu or it can be had just like that itself with rice
