Dhall Curry With Moringa Drumsticks

Finally I was quite free today. Life was quite hectic the last few days 😜  I cooked the Moringa Drumsticks ,which my Sister Julie gave me, in Dhall Curry. And my Instagram friend @abakersendeavours asked to show how I cooked it. Nothing special, just cooked the drumsticks in dhall curry. I have carrots, okra,potato and tomato besides the 'drumsticks' added to the curry. This curry is easy to prepare and goes well with roti Jala, chapati or rice. Homecooked dhall curry taste just as good as those sold in restaurants. I love my own homecooking as I can adjust the taste to my liking. I can drumsticks to it too.
