What would be the process if using frozen drumstick ?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Steph, You will have to thaw the drumstick before you use it. Rest of the steps will remain the same.

This recipe of drumstick and potatoes along with onions and tomatoes is very easy to make, I serve this often with hot rotis, the basic masalas make this recipe really great in taste.
