Drumstick Leaf Poriyal

     I am a big fan of all "Greens" whereever i'll see Fresh and Greeny Greens, will run behind like a Devil all time. When it comes to "Drumstick", i cant control my happiness(!). I love Drumstick a lot. I know to prepare very few recipes by using Drumstick. Today planned to post "Drumstick Poriyal" which is most healthiest among the Greens.

INGREDIENTS
Cleaned Drumstick Leaf - 1 bowl
Urad Dhall - 1 spoon
Toor Dhall - 1/4 cup
Chopped Onion - 2 Nos.
Red Chilly - 3 to 4 Nos.
Jeera - 1/4 spoon (Optional)
Grated Coconut - 1/4 cup
Salt - To taste
Oil - to garnish


METHOD:
     Pressure cook Toor Dhall with 3 whistle and keep aside. Keep a pan, heat a spoon of oil. Add Urad dhall, Jeera, chopped onion and crushed red chillies, saute it until raw smell goes off. Add drumstick leaf, mix it well with the sauted mixture. Allow to cook by not adding water. Before you put off the flame, add pressure cooked Toor Dhall and grated coconut, do mild sauting by not breaking the Dhall shape. Serve hot as healthy side dish. Make sure, NOT to over cook the green, as it will emit bitter taste. You can have this as side dish or just before your lunch as soon as it is ready.

Note: You can also cook by not adding Toor Dhall. But i cant compromise Toor Dhall at any cost :)
