Drumstick (Murungaikkai) Rasam and Soup

Today, I was scrolling my WordPad to find out what to do with the Drumsticks lying in my Refrigerator for a long time. I found this Rasam noted down asking my Mom. This is my Grandma’s Recipe and my Mom’s Favorite. I gave it a try today as it was easy. It came out good and tasted very different.

Here is the recipe.


Drumsticks 3
Ripe Tomatoes (Medium) 3
Pearl Onions 4
Garlic 4
Cumin ½ + ¼ tsp
Mustard Seeds ¾ tsp


Cut Pearl Onions and Garlic into two equal pieces. Cut Tomatoes into four or six equal pieces. Cut Drumstick into medium pieces.


Combine Pearl Onions, Garlic, Tomatoes, Drumstick and ½ tsp Cumin, Water and Salt in a Cooker. Cook for 3-4 whistles.

In a Pan, heat Oil. When hot, add Mustard Seeds. When they completely stop popping up, add ¼ tsp Cumin. When they crackle, add Curry Leaves. Switch off the flame when they turn slightly brown. Pour this seasoning into the Drumstick Rasam in Cooker.

Serves: 3
Serve with steamed Rice.


If you want to prepare this as Soup, remove the Drumstick pieces (after cooking) from the Rasam. Scoop out its flesh with the Spoon. Add it to the Rasam and stir. Now Soup is ready.
