Ingredients Serving: 5

  4. garlic -3 pallu

  9. coconut oil


  1. Remove the drumsticks leaves from the stem. You can use the tender stems. Wash and give it a rough chop.
  2. Heat oil in a pan. add leaves , salt and 2 tbsp water. cook the leaves for 5 minutes. allow the leaves to cook completely. The leaves will cook quickly but will not become mushy or slimy.
