Murungakai Poriyal | Drumstick Stir-fry


If you have a lot of drumstick produce and want to finish it up in an absolutely simple and yummy way, poriyal(stir-fry) is the way to go. I usually make this when I need to make a quick stir-fry that doesnt involve a lot of chop-chop. I could eat stir-fry veggies for every meal and would love to, the only problem being the time consumed during the chopping session. If there is one thing I absolutely would love to get out of, it is the chopping of green veggies especially stuff like tindora (kovakkai), green beans, okra etc. Since chopping drumstick is very easy, this dish is something I resort to often provided I am able to get enough Drumstick from the Indian Grocery store.

Ingredients

Serves - 2
Spice Level - Medium
Prep Time - 5 min
Cook time - 10 min

Drumstick - 5-6, chopped into medium sized pieces
Dry Red chilli - 2
Hing - a generous pinch
Mustard - 1 Tsp
Urad dal - 1 Tsp
Curry Leaves - few
Salt - as per need
Chettinadu Milagu podi/Your choice of Poriyal podi - 2 Tsp [optional, but nice to have]
Oil - 1 Tbsp

How do you do it

1. First microwave the chopped drumstick in water (add 2 tsp of salt in the water) for about 8-10 minutes on high. Once they are cooked well, drain and keep aside.

2. Heat a pan with oil. Add hing, mustard to pop and urad dal to roast.

3. Add curry leaves, break the dry red chilli and toss it in.

4. Now add the cooked drumstick pieces and mix well, add required salt if needed and saute for 3-5 minutes.

5. Now add your poriyal podi and mix well and saute for another minute. Remove from flame


Serve with Rice and Rasam for a simple lunch.

5 Yummmm:
