sharing a goan recipe after a long time. this one happens to be my mom’s recipe and i do make it at times. like most goan curries, coconut is an important ingredient in this recipe.

the spices that are used are the usual spices that are added in goan coconut based curries. tamarind is also added to give a slightly sour taste. the coconut along with spices is ground to a fine masala. so do use a good grinder to grind the masala.

if you want you can also add some potatoes in the curry. this goan drumsticks curry goes best with rice. though you can also serve with chapatis.
