  1. Place the drumsticks in a wide vessel and use just enough of water to cover all the drumsticks then mix salt. Cover and par boil.
  2. Meanwhile grind the coconut, the masala powder, tamarind, turmeric, chilli powder, garlic (if used)  to a very fine paste using little water. Many times my grandma grind the masala only after she have boiled the drumsticks and then she  use the water from the drumsticks only as she said.
  3. Pour over the masala over the drumstick and bring to a boil. Adjust the seasonings.
  4. In a small pan heat the oil, splutter mustard, and then hing/Asafoetida.
  5. Now pour this over the drumstick curry and put some coriander leaves on it. Cook till the drumsticks are done.
  6. Serve with steaming hot rice.
