2 sp oil, 1 sprig curry leaves
1 sp mustard seeds
Extract of 1 lemon sized ball of tamarind
Turmeric 1/4 sp
Hing 4 dashes, salt

Add oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds, curry leaves,
Add drumsticks
Fry well. Add a cup of water and let the drumsticks cook well. (the vegetable can also be microwaved or pressure cooked and added)
After the drumsticks are soft, add the tamarind extract.
Add hing, turmeric, salt. Let it boil well.
Add the masala. Do not boil too much (If you boil for too much, the molagu/pepper may make the kozhambu bitter and strong)
