Murungakkai Masala Recipe - Drumstick Curry Recipe

Murungakkai Masala Recipe
Murungakkai Masala is my all time favorite...even when I was a fuzzy eater I like drumstick and potato very much.This recipe is mostly the same as how I made cabbage curry but I wanted to post it as many of you'all asked me for the recipe when I posted mango sambar where the drumstick curry was at the side :) Being this veggie lover, I am surprised to see that this is the 2nd drumstick recipe I am posting...have to look out for more drumstick recipes to post here :)
