DrumStick Curry

 I like drumstick a lot.I used to make only sambar with it ,which taste exceptional.It gives a nice flavor to the dish.I prepared drumstick gravy , my mom used to prepare when i was small,after a very long time i prepared it and everyone in my house liked it.I have not added tomato , u can add if you like it.Tastes great with hot rice, curd rice or rasam.The drumstick should be split into two ,to that the masala gets into the vegetables too.
