Priya's feast

Keerai sambar

Murunga Keerai Sambar


Drumstick Leaves / Murungai Keerai – 250 gms

Toor dal-1 plus half cup

Onion – 2, Sliced

Mustard – half tsp

Cumin -1 tsp

Sesame oil – 2 tbsp

Red chillies – 4-5, remove the stem

Tamarind -half lemon size, soaked in a cup of water

if pulp-1 tbsp

Salt to taste

Sambar powder-1 tsp


Clean the leaves and remove the stems (stems will give bitter taste)

I always wash the bunches a day before and keep aside. So that, the keerai will shed the leaves of their own, and you don’t have the big job of doing it..

Saute the mustard, Cumin in oil

When the onion turns translucent, add the red chillies

Cook the dal with double quantity of water and smash it well

Add the sambar powder and salt to the dal

  Add the keerai to the sauteed onions

And the dal

Bring to boil

Once, the keerai is cooked, add the tamarind water

Keerai sambar is all set to go for a yummy feast…
