Drumsticks flowers or blossoms dishes are not as common as the vegetable Drumstick is. Because it’s not easily available in the market.
I came across this dish when I was in Bangalore. One of my neighbours had cooked this and I was really surprised that even the drumsticks blossoms can be cooked and it tastes so well. It is quite a common dish in Andra and Tamil Nadu. This is the benefit we get when we stay in different places and learn new things.
Drumstick flower benefits
Drumstick is one of the rare plant species whose leaves, seeds, flowers are edible and extremely nutritious. The blossoms have numerous health benefits like improving eyesight, infertility issues, reduce the amount of glucose in the blood and the high calcium content to strengthen the bones.
Drumsticks Blossoms tastes awesome and that is why I wanted to share this recipe with you all. You need to have a lot of blossoms say about 3 big cups, it tastes somewhat like mushrooms. You need to clean the stem out from the flower else it may taste mild bitter.
The egg is a good combination and this is how it is cooked. You can reduce the number of eggs if you want the natural flavour of the blossoms do not overcook them. The aroma we get while cooking is just tantalising.Join us on our Facebook Group Spices & Aromas
