Sri Lankan Drumstick Curry (Murunga Curry)

Drumstick curry /(Murunga Curry) is another popular curry from Sri Lanka. Usually I cook this at home specially when we need a mild spicy curry. Here I share a mild spicy version of Drumstick curry which is cooked with green chili. It is mild spicy due to use of green chili and appearance is bit pale than with red chili powder. On the other way, eating drumstick is quiet enjoyable because we have to eat the flesh inside and need to remove the skin part. Those who love Drumsticks (murunga) will agree with me.
