Drumstick Leaves Thuvayal|BM#7

I had a lot of drumstick leaves at home and wanted to make something different other than sambar which i usually make.I found this recipe (Thuvayal) in Mallika Badrinath's book.
Also, I thought this will be apt for Blogging Marathon for the theme, "Cook with cook books".
Recipe Source: Mallika Badrinath's Classic Lunch Recipes
1 cup Drumstick leaves
1 tbl spoon Urad dhal
1 tbl spoon Channa dhal
5-6 Red chillies
1 tbl spoon Coconut grated
pinch of Asafeotida
little tamarind
salt to taste
oil 2 tea spoon

In a pan add the oil,urad dhal,channa dhal,asafeotida and red chillies and fry until golden brown
Remove from the stove and keep them aside.
In a drop of oil fry the drunstick leaves seperatly until the leaves shrinks.
Grind everything together(leaves,Dhals,salt,tamarind and coconut) to a paste
Serve with rice or any tiffin varieties.

Thogayal with muringa ilai is new to me. When the leaves are ground, does it leave any bitter after taste?

that's interesting..I make curry with drumstick leaves, next time shall try this out too..

@Jayashree,It did not give any bitter taste.Since we are frying them for a minute till it shrinks.It did not have the raw smell too.
