How to make Manathakkali-Drumstick Poricha Kootu

  1. Clean Manathakkali keerai by removing the leaves alone. You can include the flowers and fruit, if present in the bunch. One bunch of green will yield one packed cup of greens. Wash them and roughly chop the greens.
  2. Cut the drumstick into 1’’inch long pieces
  3. Cook the moong dal with turmeric powder in pressure cooker. Cook the green and the drumstick pieces separately. Green can be cooked in tawa itself as it normally takes about 3 minutes when covered. By this time greens would have cooked and
  4. Now mix the cooked vegetables with dal in a container along with salt and keep aside.
  5. In a kadai, add oil and heat. Once heated add urad dal, coriander seeds, chilli and pepper corn and fry till golden. Switch off and add jeera. In a mixer, grind these along with shredded coconut to form a smooth paste.
  6. Combine this paste with the cooked dal and veggies and bring to boil stirring often.
  7. Temper with the items given in temper list.

My Tip:

I Use my small pressure cooker for this dish. It makes the cooking very fast. Use tender good quality drumstick as it renders dominant flavor and taste.
