Sahjan Bhaji Toor Dal Sabzi | Drumstick Leaves Bhaji Recipe

Sahjan Bhaji Toor Dal Sabzi or Drumstick Leaves Split Pigeon Peas Curry or we can also say it's Murungakkai Keerai Kootu though it's drier than normal kootu. This bhaji recipe I learnt from my MIL and normally from drumstick leaves this what is made like I mentioned in my drumstick leaves adai, drumstick leaves rasam posts this is the recipe I was talking about. This recipe is really easy and taste delicious.

The procedure seems long but if we do it with proper planning then it can be done with ease and taste really delicious just follow the steps and don't cook dal, drumstick leaves together it makes the bhaji bitter in taste. Trust me this is from experience so normally what I do is since anyway we have to make dal I cook little dal extra for the bhaji and with remaining I make normal dal for the meal.


Another key point in this recipe is not to mash up the dal and then it taste better than the mashed version. These pictures are not really best of way to show how good this recipe is but just bear with me and try once you will love it. That particular day I made Varan Bhaat, Pumpkin Taro Curry along.
