Spicy Drumsticks(Saragawa)

Drumsticks are green stick like vegetables.
They are tough from outside but soft and fleshy from the inside.
The only portion that is consumed is the inner seeds and soft flesh.
While the outer stem is discarded after properly sucking the juice out of it!

The drumsticks are normally boiled before use so that they turn softer.
This drumsticks dish is a spicy side dish which is loved by my family.

Its easy to make and tastes great too!

You will need -

6-8 Drumsticks, cut into finger-length pieces
You can peel some of the outer hard skin
(you can use the frozen precut variety too)

Oil, 1 tbsp
Salt, to taste

Hing, 1/4 tsp
Red Chilli Pwdr, 1 tsp
Turmeric, 1/4 tsp
Coriander Pwdr, 2 tsps
Cumin Pwdr, 1 tsp
Garam Masala Pwdr, 1/2 tsp
Juice of 1 lime or 1/2 tsp Dry Mango Pwdr
Cilantro to garnish.


Wash, peel, cut and boil the drumsticks for around 10 mins.
Drain and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan.
Add hing and turmeric.
Add the boiled drumsticks.
Put in all the dry masalas and salt.
Mix well.
Roast for around 5 mins.
Add the lime juice.
And Garnish with Cilantro.
And its ready to serve.
