Sargava Nu Shak | Drumstick Curry

When I talked to my Gujarati friends or family, they always says that they made drumsticks curry with besan, I never had it that way, so mine reply was always this that use less besan and make this curry with more vegetables in it. That's how my mom feed us and I remember it that way too. She used to put whole shallots in it and me and my sister used to fight about that who gets more shallots because its so soft and you just loved that melt in your mouth onions. But I didn't had small ones so I used regular ones but chopped in big cubes and still taste amazing. You won't believe this is my kids favorite vegetable, they are very picky but loved this one, I can feed them every day, so I always have this in my frozen because its easy for my weeknights meals , I don't have to cut and clean , just open up packet, take what I need and rest go back inside. That's why I love frozen vegetables, you will get year around and use it when ever you want.


1/2 bag of Frozen Drumsticks
1/2 cup frozen tuver lilva - fresh taste better, but here I used this one. (pigeon peas)
2 onions - 1 chopped finely and 1 chopped in big chunks  or if you have shallots then only one onion for tadka and few whole shallots for curry
1 potato cut in 8 pieces
2 tbsp. tomato puree
1 tbsp. ginger, chili , garlic paste
1 tsp. cumin coriander powder
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. garam masala powder
2 tsp. red chili powder or as per taste
Salt as per taste
2 tbsp. oil
Lime juice as per taste


If you are using fresh vegetables, wash and cut drumsticks in pieces and peel the pigeon peas.
If using frozen take it in colander and wash it and keep it aside.
Heat a oil in pan.
Add chopped onions in it and cook till becomes little pink in color.
Add ginger, chili garlic paste, along with all powder spices and tomato puree and cook till oil separates.
Add drumsticks and peas, chopped potatoes, big chunks of onion and salt and enough water to cook it and cover the lid.
In between stir it so it doesn't stick .
You will get thick gravy. Once its done, sprinkle some lime juice and have it with hot rotis or rice.
