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 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(fatherโ€™s dad) makes. He always says the touch of my hands in cooking reminds him of his mother.

  1. 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?
