Drumstick soup is very delicious and nutritious soup made from pulp of drumstick. Found abundantly in South India, drumsticks are packed with Vitamins and minerals. Therefore it is a must to have superfood. Today drumstick revered by many that dry powder of drumstick leaves are sold as supplements in health stores.
Many parts of the drumstick plant are consumed by Indians. You must be aware that we cook the leaves in the form of dry curry and add it as topping in certain type of Adai and Dosa.
Normally I make only the leaves as soup, but a friend of mine handed over quite a number of home grown drumsticks. As you can see in the picture below, the drumsticks were fresh and thick. While cutting it, I could feel the pieces to be buttery. Since I had them in large quantity, I instantly decided to make a soup out of it. I normally like soups that can be made in less than 10 minutes, but I made this soup to effectively use the fresh produce.
- 3 Nos Moringa Cut into pieces
- 1 Nos Lemon Cut and squeezed
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 1/2 Tsp Pepper
- 1 Tsp coriander leaves Finely chopped
- 3 Glass Water hot
Cook the drumstick pieces covered in a vessel. I used my 2 Litre pressure cooker which does this job in 2 minutes. Allow the pieces to cool.
Next, use a spoon and carefully scoop out the pulp. Collect the pulp and discard the skin.
Grind the collected pulp to a fine paste in a mixer. The quantity I had given collects about 1 cup of ground pulp.
Dilute the pulp by adding 3 more cups of hot water. Your soup is ready.
Squeeze lemon on top to make it tangy. Season with pepper and salt. Serve immediately.
