Can you tell me if the outside shell of drumstick is eaten?
No, you cannot eat the outer covering of a drumstick. The way you eat it is to put it in your mouth holding one end, bite down and pull it out. Your teeth should be scraping/squeezing all the insides into your mouth. 🙂 Enjoy!
Thank you so much hetal!

I have recently discovered your website – and tried many of your recipes. Keep posting new recipes! As a resident in Leicester, UK I am able to get almost all of your Indian ingredients. However, can you tell me what is ‘winter melon’ and ‘drumsticks’ are? Thanks.
Winter melon is also called white gourd, ash gourd, or “fuzzy melon”. It is really large so most Indian grocery stores here in the US sell smaller cut portions. Drum sticks are long green stick like vegetables. We sometimes get them fresh but are available frozen as well.
