I have seen this recipe on a Television show. They have used palak and flax seeds.  But i had only drumstick leaves in hand. So tried with that and it came out well.


  • Flax seeds                        1/4 cup
  • Wheat flour                     1 1/2 cup
  • Drumstick leaves            1 cup
  • Coriander seeds              1 tbls
  • Fennel Seeds                  1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds                   1 tsp
  • Dried red chillies            2
  • Pepper                            1 tsp
  • Cloves                            1 or 2
  • Garam masala powder   1 tsp
  • Red chilly powder         1/2 tbls
  • Salt                                 as per the taste
  • Turmeric powder            1/4 tsp
  • Yogurt                             1/2 cup
  • Oil                                   as needed

Dry roast Flax seeds coriander seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, dried red chillies, pepper, cloves  and Grind them coarsely.

You can use 1 tbls oil or that water stick on the leaves after washing is enough.
