This was a tamarind based curry made by using drumstick and potatoes. This curry goes well with the plain rice and dosa or Idli. This curry was easy to make with only few ingredients.
This curry tastes similar to our puli kulambu and drumstick porichakulambu . My mom told me to add the potatoes too and this combination was so delicious.

Potato – 2
Tamarind – a marble size
Chilli powder – 1 tsp
Coriander powder – ½ tsp

Add this tamarind mixture to a pan and bring to boil.
In the mean time mix the besan flour with half cup of water without any lumps.
