Oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds for tempering
Method


Method


1. Pressure cook moong dhal, chop the drumsticks into 3 inch long pieces.

2. In a pan combine water and drumstick and cook until it is done.

3. Heat ½ tsp of oil in a pan and saute red chili, urad dhal , pepper corns. Grind it to a paste by
adding cumin seeds and grated coconut.

4. combine the moong dhal, drumstick and add this grounded mixture.

5. Add salt and hing, give a boil until it blends.
