Stir Fried Drumsticks| Shango Bhaji~Everyday Vegetable
Drumsticks stir fry as a vegetable is what I learnt here in Goa.
It’s made on a regular basis here in Goa and since people generally prefer rice and curry or daal for their mid-day meal it pairs well with it.
Drumsticks also Moringa Oleifera is a tree native to India and is cultivated for its tender seeds and leaves.
The immature seed pods, called “drumsticks”, are commonly consumed in South Asia. They are prepared by parboiling, and cooked in a curry until soft. The seed pods/fruits, even when cooked by boiling, remain particularly high in vitamin C (which may be degraded variably by cooking) and are also a good source of dietary fiber, potassium, magnesium, and manganese.
Though the leaves are more nutritious the seeds or fruits are more popular in my house. The fruits can be served just parboiled or used in sambhar. You can also make a curry again it tastes great with rice.
This Shango as it is called here is delicious do try it!
