Chicken & Drumstick Leaves Curry

My freezer will have always frozen greens, i usually buy fresh Indian greens from Indian grocery whenever i'll go there. Back home,i'll clean them immediately and stock them in freezer for further use, unfortunately we dont get variety of greens here. Apart from drumstick leaves,methi leaves and amaranth leaves we dont have any choices of greens, obviously i have no option rather than freezing them. Its been a routine for me to freeze drumstick leaves,so that i can make many dishes using this greens whenever i feel like cooking with this healthy greens.

Its been a while i posted non vegetarian dishes in my space, last week i prepared this super spicy chicken curry with drumstick leaves, this dish goes awesome as side dish along with hot piping rasam and sambhar rice..I used a homemade spice powder to spice up this chicken dish, just loved it.Sending to Usha's Chicken Feast.


2cups Chicken (cut as medium pieces)
2nos Onions(chopped finely)
1/2cup Drumstick leaves
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Salt
Oil
2nos Whole spices (bayleaves,cloves,cinnamon stick)
Few curry leaves

To Grind:
2tbsp Coriander seeds
1no Cinnamon stick
2nos Cloves
2nos Cardamoms
1tsp Cumin seeds
1tsp Fennel seeds 

Grind all the spices given under the list 'to grind' as fine powder and keep aside..

Meanwhile heat enough oil in a kadai,fry the whole spices until they turns brown, add the chopped onions,ginger garlic ,curry leaves and cook until the onions turns transculent,add now the chicken pieces,turmeric powder and salt,cook everything again for few minutes..

Now add the already grounded powder,red chilly powder,frozen drumstick leaves to the cooking chicken pieces,sprinkle some water and cook everything simmer until the chicken gets well cooked..

Serve hot as side dish.

I never cooked nor tasted drumstick leaves. Next time I go shopping, will look out for these leaves.

Chicken curry looks good. I made spinach chicken curry a few times and will try this sometime.

Thanks for sending it to Chicken Feast

Drumstick leaves is a new ingredient for me! Never heard of them before and your post has got me so intrigued about their taste. But they sure sound delicious especially paired with the chicken. I am going to keep my eyes open for drumstick leaves.
