Saragva nu shak | dhaba style saragva nu shak | drumstick curry recipe

Saragva nu shak is a slightly spicy and creamy curry made with drumsticks and regular spices. A creamy masala paste made with peanuts, gram flour, and sesame seeds is cooked with sabzi gravy until it has developed all the flavors. This dish is not only easy to prepare but also highly nutritious and flavorful. It is usually served as a side dish with rice or roti.

The key to making tasty saragva nu shak at home are
  • Firstly, choose fresh, green drumsticks for the sabzi and avoid using frozen ones as they tend to be dry and lack moisture. Use medium-sized drumsticks so that the gravy’s flavor can easily reach the center part of the drumstick.
  • Secondly, prepare a paste with peanuts, sesame, and gram flour, which gives the sabzi a creamy and dhaba-style flavor.
  • Additionally, you can add other vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, and peas to the sabzi to make it more nutritious.
  • Finally, Saragva nu shak tastes great when it is prepared slightly spicy with fresh drumsticks.
