This drumstick dal recipe is the way my mother makes it. I love the flavor and taste of drumstick in the dal, rather than plain dal whenever I go to the market, I always make sure to buy drumstick so that I could add it to the dal
For the best result follow my detailed step by step photo instructions and tips

Tips for making drumstick dal?
  1. I have added the drumstick right in the beginning if you have very tender drumsticks, you could add them with the onion masala, the drumsticks which I had were not very tender so they got cooked correctly
  2. Sometimes, if you pressure cook the drumstick, they get overcooked and they lose shape, thus they mixed in the dal it doesn’t appear nice and while eating too the drumsticks seeds pop in your mouth, so use common sense while cooking any recipe with drumsticks
  3. I have used arhar dal ( tuvur dal) or called in English pigeon pea with the drumstick as the taste two combines very well with each other but you can experiment the same recipe with moong or chana dal
  4. Cooking dal for 25 minutes under pressure is good enough but as you can see I just used a simple pot so it took more than an hour to be tender
  5. Then it is an important part of cooking arhar dal that you must soak dal in warm water for at least 30 minutes before cooking
  6. I had soaked the dal thus cooking time of dal is reduced if you don’t soak it then you will have to increase the cooking time it is advisable not to add drumsticks in the beginning if you don’t soak the dal
  7. The most important step in making pigeon pea lentils is that first I roasted them in a pan for 5 minutes why did I do because arhar dal causes of build-up gas and bloating in the belly so taking the step helps to reduce the gassy elements from the dal
  8. Don't add salt in between of cooking dal your dal won't cook soft and tender
  9. Serve Drumstick Dal along with Rice and a bowl of curd for a wholesome weeknight dinner or even a comforting lunch.
