how to make drumstick vegetable curry

  1. To make drumstick vegetable curry | Gujarati style saragva nu shaak | shevga bhaji | heat 1 tbsp oil in a deep non-stick pan.
  2. Add 1 cup drumsticks. Drumstick is the main vegetable in drumstick curry! Drumsticks are a great source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, and K, as well as calcium and iron.
  3. Sauté for 2 minutes.
  4. Add ¼ cup water.
  5. Mix well and cover and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
  6. Once cooked, remove in a plate and keep aside.
  7. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a same deep pan.
  8. Add ½ tsp cumin seeds (jeera). When heated in oil, cumin seeds "bloom" - they sizzle and release their volatile oils.  This blooming process not only contributes to the aroma but can also enhance the flavors of the other spices that are added later.
  9. Add ½ tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson). When spluttered in hot oil at the beginning of cooking, mustard seeds release their pungent, nutty aroma and a bit of heat, which forms the base of the flavor profile for the curry.
  10. Add a pinch of hing. 
  11. Add 8 to 10 curry leaves. Curry leaves are known for their pleasant, fragrant curry-like scent. When tempered, they release their essential oils and fill the dish with a warm, earthy aroma.
  12. Add ½ cup finely chopped onions.
  13. Sauté for 2 minutes.
  14. Add 1 tsp ginger garlic paste. Ginger and garlic also have distinct flavors that build the foundation of the curry. Ginger brings a warm, slightly peppery kick, while garlic adds a sharp, savory note.
  15. Add 1 tsp green chilli paste.
  16. Sauté for a few seconds.
  17. Add ½ cup finely chopped tomatoes. Tomatoes add a pleasant hit of tanginess that cuts through the richness of the dish and complements the mild flavor of the drumsticks.
  18. Sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
  19. Add ½ tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
  20. Add 1 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder. Kashmiri chilies are known for their deep red hue, which they impart to the curry. This gives the dish a visually appealing and appetizing look.
  21. Add 1 tsp coriander cumin seeds powder. Coriander and cumin powder create a warm, inviting aroma and a complex flavor that enhances the taste of the drumsticks and other vegetables in the curry.
  22. Add ½ tsp garam masala. 
  23. Add ¼ cup water.
  24. Cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
  25. Add the prepared paste.
  26. Cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
  27. Add 1 cup hot water.
  28. Add the sautéed drumsticks.
  29. Add salt to taste.
  30. Add ½ tsp jaggery. The sweetness from jaggery can help to tone down the heat from chilies, creating a more balanced flavor profile.
  31. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  32. Add 1 tsp lemon juice. A squeeze of lemon juice at the end of cooking can add a touch of acidity that cuts through the richness of the curry and brightens up the overall flavor profile.
  33. Add 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania).
  34. Mix well and serve drumstick vegetable curry | Gujarati style saragva nu shaak | shevga bhaji | hot.
