Yes we can make Kirugarudhiya out of so many things, but Murangatholhi Kirugarudhiya (drumstick yellow curry) is probably our favourite from them all. Below is our version of this beautiful mild yellow curry.
As usual, before we begin with the recipe, we do have some things to tell you: we used a sour mango but you can substitute that with bilamagu, we used a githeyo mirus but a lot of people would use tholhi mirus instead, we softened the drumsticks in water, but it’s quite usual to do that in thin coconut milk, and some people do add cinnamon and cardamom, we didn’t. There’s a bit more to it, but we are going to leave it at that. So, do whatever works for you, because after all it’s your Kirugarudhiya and the important thing is that you like it.
