Chicken Drumstick Curry

It's the season of drumsticks here at my home and every other visitor of my house gets to enjoy atleast 4-5 drumsticks for free. But we take it for granted and hardly cook dishes using drumstick or the moringa leaves. Even the drumstick flowers carry nutritional benefits for our eyes and eye sight, i should give it a try next time to put these flowers into rasam or just a drumstick flower tea.

Today i had a craving to eat chicken and asked my mom to buy chicken for me but i had this idea of cooking chicken curry with drumstick slowly cooked with coconut milk. So i had reserved this idea in my mind for few days to make this curry and trust me it's definitely a bomb! Needless to say the flavors of slow cooked drumstick and the coconut milk makes this dish so very exotic! Do give it a try and share your valuable feedback - it really matters a lot. Happy Cooking :)
