Muringakka Thoran / Drumstick Stir Fry

Yey..My parents are here and like any other lazy daughter, I have happily withdrawn from my kitchen and my mom have taken over as head chef !
Not that I am lazy brat..You see it’s just a timing problem..
By the time I wake up my mom would have already made breakfast and by the time I come back from office dinner is ready:-)
See.. I hardly have anytime to reveal my cooking skills to my parents.
To my surprise this time around I see that my mom have suddenly got some interest in baking !!
And yours truly has taken over the role of an earnest baking instructor and our baking lessons are going in full swing


For the past two weeks my mom have been telling about a small surprise she have picked for me from my hometown
And that turned out to be a small cast iron skillet!!! I hope this turns out to be my magic skillet:-)
I picked one of my fav dish as the inaugural dish for my cute little skillet..



Here is what you need..

For Grinding
1/3 Cup Grated Coconut
½ - 1 tspn Chili powder
½ tspn Cumin seeds

For tempering
1 tspn Oil
¼ tspn Mustard seeds
2 tspn Urud Dal
2 red chilies
Curry leaves 2 stems

Drumsticks 2-3 nos , cut in about 1.5 inch long
½ tspn turmeric powder
Salt to taste
¼ Cup water.

Transfer all 3 ingredients for grinding to a blender and give it a quick mix for few seconds. You don’t have to grind it to a paste form.
Add the oil to the skillet. Once oil is hot enough add in mustard seeds, urud dal , red chilies and curry leaves
Once the mustard seeds starts sputter, add the coconut mixture and stir for a minute.
Now you need to scoop out the mix from the skillet and keep aside in a bowl.
In the same skillet add in the drumsticks and a quarter cup water. Add in turmeric powder and salt.
Cover and cook till the drumsticks turn tender.
Add in the coconut mixture .Give it a gentle stir and cover and cook for a minute..

There you have a signature Kerala dish..Muringakka thoran..
