Drumstick Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 54 / #100chutneys

We all love drumsticks especially the little one at home will make sure that I prepare it at least twice a week. Luckily, I got a wonderful friend who gives me fresh and organic drumsticks from her farm every week. I usually prepare Sambhar, Fry, Vada and Kootu using drumstick and when my chutney series going on, how can I leave this veggie ;). So prepared a delicious chutney to serve with plain rice using drumstick pulp. The drumstick pieces are cooked in a turmeric and salt water for 10 - 15 minutes and then, pulp is removed from it. The remaining ingredients are sautéed in an oil and ground coarsely along with the pulp. This pairs perfectly with hot plain rice and also, can be served with Dosa. Adjust the quantity of red chilli according to taste bud or family's preferences.
