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 i assisted my mom in making this drumstick kootu.  My father appreciated me so much as the kootu tasted the same as the one my grand mom(father’s dad) makes. He always says the touch of my hands in cooking reminds him of his mother.

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?
