Drumstick Leaves & Peas Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 37 / #100chutneys



It is a known fact that Drumstick leaves which is also popularly known as Moringa leaves have amazing health benefits. Because of its medicinal properties, these are nowadays available in the form of capsules and powders. But since we are fortunate to get the fresh ones, I make sure to include these leaves and drumsticks in our regular menu during the season. Drumstick leaves are generally used in Sambhar, Adai, Stir fry / Poriyal, Kootu etc. But in my place, whenever we get fresh leaves in the market my family expect me to cook Crab curry. Yeah, Crab and drumstick leaves make a fantastic combination. In my today's recipe, I have used drumstick leaves along with green peas and horse gram to make a nutritious chutney which pairs perfectly with Rice.

If you have a picky eater at home who removes all these leaves from rice, then try this healthy chutney. Even if they eat one tablespoon of this chutney,  it gives a huge satisfaction of serving a healthy meal for our kids.

Ingredients :

1 Tbsp Oil 
1/2 - 3/4 Cup Drumstick leaves 
1/4 Cup Green peas ( Cooked ) 
1 Tbsp Horse gram / Kollu 
2 - 3 Dry red chillies 
2 Tbsp Coconut, grated
Small piece of Tamarind 
Salt to taste 

Method :

Heat oil in a pan and add horse gram.

Fry it in a low flame until it changes its colour and add the remaining ingredients except salt.

Saute until the drumstick leaves gets cooked and remove from the flame.

Cool the sautéed ingredients and grind into fine or little coarse paste by adding the required quantity of salt and water.

The consistency of chutney should be thick so add water according to it.

Once done, transfer it to a bowl and serve.


Serving Options :

Serve with Rice.
