I have prepared this Drumstick/Munakaya sambar after a long time.The place where we live dnt get our Indian vegetables in supermarkets,for these i have to go for citycenter where we have two indian stores,in that stores we get all indian items.That too our lucky sometimes we get fresh vegetables sometimes they will not be good.This time my lucky i found fresh vegetables and i picked up some vegetables and we did some shopping for my two kids.As my son ‘s first birthday is coming we purchased new clothes for him.His birthday is August 12th,and school uniform for my daughter.
