Drumstick Soup/Murungakkai Soup

                                                                  I have been looking for iron rich recipes these days and in the process found this soup.I have tasted a light version of this soup in some restaurants but never tried it.I decided to make this today and going through a lot of recipes on various blogs.Ultimately i made my own version of it.While picking drumsticks for a soup let them be little thick and pulpy.




You will Need(to make One large bowl of soup)

  • 3-4 Drumsticks
  • One Small Onion
  • Few Drumstick leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Few drops of Lemon juice

1.Wash and Chop the drumsticks into lengthy pieces and boil it in water.

2.Drain the water and scoop out the fleshy part,collect it in a bowl.
3.You can reserve a few chunky parts for garnishing.
4.Heat butter in a sauce pan and fry the finely chopped onion and add drumstick leaves.
5.Add water and allow it to boil.
6.Meanwhile make a puree out of the drumstick pulp.
7.Pour it in to the boiling pan.
8.Adjust the consistency according to your preference by adding water.
