Drumstick Poriyal | Murungakkai Poriyal | Poriyal Recipe

Murungakkai Poriyal, a delicious and quick to make poriyal with drumsticks. Actually i haven't prepared this poriyal often because whether in US/Canada, the drumsticks are not easily available, only indian stores have them sometimes. So whenever i got them, i prefer to add few pieces in sambar, karakulambu and aviyal such that it will last for 7- 10 days. 

Last time, when we went to indian store here, the drumstick was so fresh, so i picked a couple of extra drumsticks than the usual and in the same week, all of sudden we had a travel plan to other city and were out of town for 10 days because of ST's work. 

As i didn't want to waste them  before traveling, I made this poriyal for our meal along with rice and sambar. It turned out super good, the flavor was subtle and simply love this poriyal. Now let's check out how i have prepared this poriyal.
