Clean and wash drumstick blossom, there is a chance of little bugs, so clean thoroughly I normally spread it on flat plate,look for any spoilt blossoms/leaves, remove it and then wash them in batches in water.
Soak the chana dal atleat an hour before cooking. Pressure cook chana dal/gram dal for 4-5 whistles or until soft.
Heat a kadai, heat oil for tempering, splutter mustard seeds, add hing and curry leaves. Add green chilies and saute for a minute.
Next add onions and saute until translucent. Add tomatoes and cook until soft and oil separates. Now add washed drumstick blossoms and saute well. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes, until the blossoms are cooked.
Next add cooked chana dal, coconut and salt and 1 cup of water to this.Mix well.
Let it simmer for another 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve with Rice.
I packed this for my hubby's lunch along with roti's and bhindi paneer
