DRUMSTICK KOOTU | MURUNGAKKAI KOOTU RECIPE

This kootu recipe is the one which i cooked for the first time when i was in 10 th standard. Right from my childhood i am fond of cooking and helping my mom in cooking. This drumstick is one of my most favorite recipe and one day my taught me how to make drumstick kootu.  My father appreciated me so much as the kootu tasted the same as the one my grand mom(father’s dad) makes. After that, I am the one who makes this kootu at my place. Missed my dad a lot when i made this a week back.

  22. Some children hate drumsticks, so i cut them in 2.5 " and boil them till colour changes. Cool and then remove pulp with the help of spoon and discard the skin. Use it in any drumstick recipe?
