What is drumstick and potato sabzi made of?

  1. Drumstick and potato sabzi is made of 1 1/2 cups drumsticks , cut into 1” pieces, 1 1/2 cups potato cubes, 2 tbsp oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson), 1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera), 1/4 tsp asafoetida (hing), 1 cup chopped onions, 1 tbsp finely chopped garlic (lehsun), 5 curry leaves (kadi patta), 1 1/2 cups finely chopped tomatoes, 2 tsp chilli powder, 1 tbsp coriander-cumin seeds (dhania-jeera) powdersalt to taste, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi) and 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania).

How to cook drumstick and potatoes

  1. To make drumstick and potato sabzi recipe | sahjan ki sabji | singhi aloo sabzi | drumstick with potatoes, we need drumsticks. Look for smooth, greenish skin on the pods. While most drumsticks have slight bumps indicating where the seeds are, avoid those which have pronounced bumps and attenuated spaces in between. These have reached an age and a stage where the flavour will be strong and rather bitter, and the seeds, instead of being pleasantly crunchy and tender, will be hard and dry.
  2. Wash and clean the drumstick thoroughly. Chop off the top a bit and partially peel it with knife itself. Chop them into finger length pieces of equal size. Here we need 1 1/2 cups drumsticks , cut into 1” pieces. Add them in a deep non stick pan.

  6. Add 2 cups of water also for cooking.
  7. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Once the potatoes are soft, the vegetables are ready. Keep aside along with the water.

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.
