    Dear Sneha, the drumstick recipe, you have posted, was excellent. Looking forward to seeing many more such good recipes from you. Meanwhile, I was just wondering, if you have forgotten to include onion and chilli powder in the list of ingredients, b'cos, I find them being used in the method write up. Thanks, and have a good day!
