    Hi,

    Glad to hear that you tried this recipe. The best way is to chop the drumsticks into small pieces. Once cooked, you can simply open them with your fingers (it should open without much difficulty) and chew on the pieces. This is how it is done in most households in South India.

    Hi from Finland, I’ve been admiring these looong sticks in our ethnic shop for a year and now braved myself to make this recipe. DELICIOUS.
    I steamed the drumsticsk to get all the flavour. Then I sliced them lengthwise and scratched out the pulp with a spoon. While it works, it is also messy. Is there a better way?
