As I have mentioned in my earlier post drumstick is used widely in Oriya cuisine. Here is another variation of this healthy vegetable.
- Chuin ( Drumstick ) -7
- Potato -2 medium size

- Pancha phutana : 1tsp
- Tomato: 1 medium finely chopped
- Ambula(dry mango): 1
- oil - 2 tbsp (preferably mustard oil, but you can use oil of your choice )

Peel off the outerlayer of drumstick (chhuin) and cut it into 2 inch pieces.
Cut patato in to small pieces ( preferably circles or semi-circles).
Wash the pieces of potato and drumstick properly.
Make a fine paste of mustard seed , dry chili and garlic cloves.
Heat oil in a pan and add pacha phutana and as it stops spluttering add the chopped onion along with a pinch of salt and cook till onion is translucent.
Add the pieces of potato and drumstick sauté for 2-4 mins.
Add the paste, turmeric powder ,salt to taste, ambula, tomato and half cup of water.
Cover it with a lid and allow to cook for 10-15 mins on a lower flame till the potatoes and drumstick is cooked through, but not mushy.
Remove the lid and cook till you have achieved the desired consistency.
Serve it hot with rice and enjoy.
