This is a no onion-garlic-tomato recipe, yet a delightful dish. It is a very easy and simple way to make, very comforting food, but tastes great!

4 Drumsticks, peeled and cut into 2" pieces
2 Potatoes, peeled, boiled, cut into cubes
3 tbsps Gram Flour (besan)
2 Green chillies (chopped)
1/4 tsp Cumin Seeds
A pinch of Asafoetida (hing)

1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
2 tbsps Tamarind Water
1 tbsps Chopped Coriander Leaves (cilantro)
Salt to taste
3 tbsps Oil
Water As Required
Soak tamarind for few minutes in warm water. Squeeze to take out juice from tamarind, keep it aside. Boil potatoes and drumsticks, take care not to make drumstick mushy. Drain water and set aside.

In a bowl, mix gram flour, dry spice powders and 3 tbsps tamarind water. Make sure there are no lumps in it.

Heat oil in a pan or wok. Add cumin seeds, asafoetida and chopped green chillies. Saute for a minute. Add gram flour tamarind mixture, roast it for 3-4 minutes. 

Add boiled potatoes, drumsticks and salt in it. Fold nicely. Add 1/2 cup water. Cook for another 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle coriander leaves on the top, turn off the heat now.
