Hello my dear friends and fellows! Welcome back to my space Dish Of Delight once again!
Today I am sharing the recipe of drumstick curry in mustard gravy. This was one of my mother’s favourite dishes. Whenever I cooked this dish, it reminded me of my mom. She was a great cook and she had few of her own wonderful veg recipes. I have learned a lot of cooking ideas from her.
So, lets take go through the recipe for drumstick curry in mustard gravy.

Potatoes 2 medium sized cut into thin long pieces
Pumpkin 100 gm cut into pieces similar to the size of the pieces of potato
