Murungakai Poriyal | Drumstick Stir-fry

If you have a lot of drumstick produce and want to finish it up in an absolutely simple and yummy way, poriyal(stir-fry) is the way to go. I usually make this when I need to make a quick stir-fry that doesnt involve a lot of chop-chop. I could eat stir-fry veggies for every meal and would love to, the only problem being the time consumed during the chopping session. If there is one thing I absolutely would love to get out of, it is the chopping of green veggies especially stuff like tindora (kovakkai), green beans, okra etc. Since chopping drumstick is very easy, this dish is something I resort to often provided I am able to get enough Drumstick from the Indian Grocery store.


Serves - 2
Spice Level - Medium
Prep Time - 5 min
Cook time - 10 min

Drumstick - 5-6, chopped into medium sized pieces
Dry Red chilli - 2
Hing - a generous pinch
Mustard - 1 Tsp
Urad dal - 1 Tsp
Curry Leaves - few
Salt - as per need
Chettinadu Milagu podi/Your choice of Poriyal podi - 2 Tsp [optional, but nice to have]
Oil - 1 Tbsp

How do you do it

1. First microwave the chopped drumstick in water (add 2 tsp of salt in the water) for about 8-10 minutes on high. Once they are cooked well, drain and keep aside.

2. Heat a pan with oil. Add hing, mustard to pop and urad dal to roast.

3. Add curry leaves, break the dry red chilli and toss it in.

4. Now add the cooked drumstick pieces and mix well, add required salt if needed and saute for 3-5 minutes.

5. Now add your poriyal podi and mix well and saute for another minute. Remove from flame

Serve with Rice and Rasam for a simple lunch.

Paneer Bread Roll [Step by Step Recipe with Pics]

Tea time snack to tempt you? You are in the right place! :). Paneer Bhurji stuffing inside your favorite choice of bread, coated with ghee and then toasted to a shiny brown is one of the most delicious snack ever. The other day when I wanted to make Parathas with paneer bhurji filling, a friend of mine suggested making these bread rolls and am glad I made these. Not only were they yummy but these were very easy to make also. If you have any kind of filling that needs to be used this would be a perfect way to do that. Now off to the recipe


Serves - 2
Spice Level - Moderate
Prep Time - 30 min
Cook time- 5 min

Bread slices - 5-6 or as needed [ I used whole wheat bread ]
Ghee - Few tbsp to coat
Tomato ketchup - Few tbsp to use as a spread
Paneer Bhurji - 1 cup [Click on link for Paneer bhurji Recipe]

How do you do it 

1. Trim the edges of the bread. Use a rolling pin and roti stone like below and flatten the bread well.

2. Apply a coat of ketchup on one column of the bread. You can use any kind of spread that you like, I would have ideally liked to use some mint-coriander chutney here.

3. Place the filling carefully on that column. Dont let it spread all over.

4. Roll the bread carefully and seal with little water. Apply a little ghee all over the rolled bread.

5. Repeat the same for all bread slices.

6. Heat a pan and toast the bread on both sides on medium flame to get to a nice brown color. On the other hand, for a sinful version, you could deep fry these in oil too :).

Yummy Paneer Bread rolls ready. Serve these with green chutney or you can have them as is.
