How to make Drumstick potato curry recipe, murungyakaya curry

Drumstick Potato Curry; as the name suggests, this recipe calls for drumstick and potato as the main ingredients, cooked in tomato-onion gravy. I discovered this combination once when I peeked into one of my colleague’s tiffin box. When asked, she told me, it’s one of their Maharashtrian dishes. Got curious of the recipes, as it appeared and tasted good.

Later, when researched, I found that it’s even made by Bengalis, except the gravy is based on mustard seeds.. Actually, most of their recipes are based on mustard. I have made it, but somehow we didn’t like it. May be I couldn’t prepare it well.. Cooking needs practice and patience. 
 
Now said that, let me tell you, I am a big fan of bengali cuisine…I got this chance of tasting bengali food, when I was home alone and we had ordered tiffin from a bengali aunty. I wish, I could have asked her the recipes.. Time was different, at your younger age, you will only think of having good food, doesn’t matter, who makes it. Someone or other will prepare for you.. But, when you grow older and independent, and time comes when you have to feed youself , then you will think of how to make good food.
