This is another variant. When I was talking to mom about the post she told me that this is the most preferred way of cooking drumstick leaves for pregnant ladies.
Coconut grated: 1 cup
Shallots: 5 to 6 nos (peeled)
Corriandar seeds: 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds: 2 tbsp
Black Pepper: 2 tbsp
Cumin Seeds: 2 tbsp
Garlic cloves: 5 to 6 numbers
Drumstick leaves: 2 cups (remove twigs)
Water: As needed
Salt: As needed
Put all the ingredients except drumstick, water and salt in a blender and make it to a fine paste. Add this to a round-bottomed vessel and add water and salt and allow it to boil well. Let the raw smell of the paste is completely gone. Add drumstick leaves and allow it to boil till the leaves become tender. Remove it from flame.
Your Drumstick Leaves with Pepper is ready. The benefits are as described as in the first method. Even more beneficial.
There is another option of using baby shark instead of Drumstick leaves. Everyother things remain the same.
Baby shark that is dried and preserved with salt only. No other artificial preservatives. Not the fresh one. Make sure to use less salt since the fish is preserved with salt. Sometimes that alone may be sufffice.
