Goan Sangacho Ross/Goan Drumstick Curry

You might have noticed that am cooking from Goan cuisine for this week's blogging marathon. Yes my theme for this week is Regional cuisine from a country. Though many regional cuisine do exists, i couldnt resist to go with Goan cuisine. This cuisine is particularly very interesting to explore as most of their traditional dishes are influenced by the Portuguese cuisine. Seafoods have their own place in Goan cuisine, however you can still find some aromatic vegetarian curries. While googling, i have crossed couple of delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes from this cuisine. Even i was surprised to see some dishes are seriously very simple to dish out with pantry friendly ingredients. Obviously i picked an aromatic curry from Pooja's space which is an easy breezy curry to cook and serve with rice and papads. Flavored with a special masala paste, this curry is also prepared with cooked dal.

Goan Drumstick Curry, Sangacho Ross

Interesting curry to give a try if you want something easy to cook and serve with your bowl of rice. A special masala paste is very much needed to bring the flavor to this vegan curry. No tempering is needed, even i was skeptical to give a try to this dish as tempering is a must for me. And this curry changed my mind, even without tempering this curry tastes absolutely flavourful and delicious. Drumsticks are excellent source of iron, if you want to add few more vegetables to this same curry, please go with. However i want to stick with the original recipe, hence i opted for Drumsticks. We loved this curry very much, trust me this curry is a must try as this curry is completely oil free.
