Nuggekayi huli recipe - Drumstick curry - Murungakkai curry

nuggekayi huli
Nuggekayi huli recipe - Drumstick curry - This drumstick huli is a konkani style toor dal and red coconut masala paste based curry. Drumstick is my all time favorite vegetable pod, so I make curry and sambar often with it. This curry has a slightly sour taste as I have used tamarind and such curries are called as huli in kannada.The flavor of drumsticks, curry leaves, fenugreek seeds, coriander seeds and garlic enriches the curry and also enhances the taste. Drumstick is a seasonal vegetable pod and is commonly used in sambar and curries in Karnataka. A very simple yet delicious hot drumstick curry really goes well with steamed rice.
