Drumstick is a common vegetable available in Tamilnadu and has its own special place in our day to day cooking. Particularly in our home, we use to have this vegetable in sambar or kootu or avial, which gives good taste and aroma, if done with perfect prepartion method. Let us see how to make this traditional sambar. This is NO onion recipe.
Ingredients required
Drumstick (Murungakkai) - 2 nos cut in 2 inches long.
Tomato - 1 no.
Tur Dal - 100 gms boiled and mashed to paste
Tamarind - 1 lemon sized sqeezed in water
Home made sambar powder - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 3 tsp
Kal Uppu (Raw salt) - according to taste.
To Temper (Thalikka)
Mustard seeds (Kadugu) - 1 tsp
Urud Dal (U.Paruppu) - 1 tsp
Channa dall (Kadalaiparuppu) - 1 tsp
Red Chilli - 2 nos
Asafoetida (Katti perungayam) - 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds (Vendhayam) - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 10-15 leaves
Everybody knows how to make sambar, no doubt on that. But making this method, gives exact taste of typical brahmin sambar, and gives good aroma.
First boil tur-dal in a cooker, remove and mash it and make it a paste. Take the cooked tur-dal water in a glass and keep aside. In a pan, add 1 tsp of oil and just saute the Drumstick and tomato. Add tamarind water and bring to full boil. Now add Sambar powder and Turmeric Powder and bring to boil for 2 or 3 mins until the sambar powder is mixed fully in the vegetables. Now add the mashed Tur-Dal and add the cooked dal water into it and bring it to sambar consistency. Now add Kal-uppu according to taste and once fully over, remove it and keep aside.
In a kadai, add oil and mustard seeds to temper. Add all the other ingredients to temper one by one and pour over the sambar. (Remember, asafoetida and fenugreek when tempered in oil and added to sambar, gives perfect aroma and taste).. Your Traditional Drumstick Sambar is ready to serve with steamed rice. This goes yummy with Urulaikizhangu fry, Yam fry or Beans coconut curry.
