MURANGAKKAI URULAI KARA KUZHAMBU (Drumstick n Potato tamarind gravy)

1/2 tsp - Fenugreek seeds
1/4 tsp - Cumin seeds
2 nos - Red chillies
1 tsp - Tamarind paste
Curry leaves
1 tbsp - Gingelly oil
Salt as reqd

How to make:
Heat oil in a kadai, add mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds, red chillies, curry leaves and saute well.

Add onions, drumstick, potatoes and fry well. Add tamarind paste, chilli, coriander n sambar powders, asafoetida  and salt mix well.
