3 Drum-Stick This vegetable is about a foot long and varies from pale green to dark green colour. The outer skin is usually peeled away and the remaining vegetable is cut into five or six finger length pieces. Drum-sticks are used in sambhar/sambar, avial, cooked in milk and also with raw mango and onions. It is also pickled along with sun dried tomatoes and is simply one of the best pickles of Andhra Pradesh! Occasionally they may have a slight bitter taste. This could be either because the drum-stick is not yet ready to be plucked or its seed varies a bit from the normal ones. When buying look for firm, slightly darker than pale green drum-sticks. The thickness should be roughly about that of an average adult thumb.

4 Drumstick Leaves Drumstick leaves are very high in vitamin A and Calcium. They can be either cooked like any other green leafy vegetable or added to dal/lentil. When buying, look for tender leaves as the more mature ones tend to be of hardier nature. Heat a few cups of water until more than luke warm, and then add the washed leaves, cover and remove from heat. Keep covered for half a minute and then drain the water. Now the leaves are ready to be added to the dal/lentil of your choice. These leaves are best used fresh as they tend to rot quickly.
