Drumstick Pulp Rasam

I was just jayblogging when I chanced upon Priyas and what caught my attention was this Drumstick Pulp Rasam and my brained zoomed to delicious drumstick soup that I had at Anjappar recently. 

It was really delicious and I was actually surprise that we can make soup of drumstick. Normally I had cooked them with sambar, sardine curry or just simply drumstick masala with egg .

Priyas Versatile Recipes - Everyday's Cooking (  is a great page with loads of recipes just waiting to try and enjoy.   I knew I have stock of drumstick in my fridge so that's it, and I always have ready stocked of boiled toor dhall.

I tried and was very happy with the result. It was a good combination with sambar and cabbage fry.
