Adding jaggery and grated coconut is optional. We Goans consume a lot of coconut and hence we add it to a lot of dishes that we prepare here. Some people add chopped tomatoes to this subzi. Green chillies can be replaced by chilly powder. So modify this subzi as per your taste and need and enjoy this with rice or rotis.
My Mom taught me to prepare this Drumsticks Subzi during my recent trip to Goa. My Dad being a pure vegetarian, my Mom prepares different types of veg dishes specially for him. My Dad loves this dish. My hubby too loves a lot of vegetarian dishes as they are good for health. This dish is simple to prepare. Drumsticks as you know are very good for health. They are blood purifiers and also give a good glow to the skin.
