Mushroom Drumstick Curry

We have a drumstick tree in our garden and we get lots and lots of drumsticks from it, that my mum shares it with all our neighbors all the time. One time, one of our neighbors, a grandmother, gave me this recipe of mushrooms and drumsticks. I love mushrooms so I was immediately interested and willing to try it out. This turned out great and my husband and me simply loved it! This grandmother tells me she also makes drumstick with mutton....waiting to try that out some other day!

Mushroom Recipes

Mushroom Drumstick Curry

1. Wash the mushrooms and drumstick and chop them up. Chop the onions and make a puree of the tomato. 
2. In a kadai, heat oil. Then add the mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves.
3. Then add the chopped onions and green chillies. Saute the onions until they turn translucent. 

4. Then add the tomato puree and cook until the tomatoes are cooked.
5. Add the ginger garlic paste and saute until the raw smell leaves.

6. Add all the masalas and salt and cook for 2 minutes. 
7. Add the chopped drumsticks and mix with the masala, add little water and let it cook.

8. When the drumsticks are half done, add the chopped mushrooms, mix well and allow to cook for about 5-8 minutes or until done.

9. Add the chopped coriander leaves, check for salt and switch off.

Mushroom Drumstick Curry

1. Since mushrooms cook faster than drumsticks, I added the drumsticks first. If your drumsticks are tender, you can add both together.
2. You can add chopped tomatoes too, since I wanted a smother masala, I pureed it.

Until next time,
