Drumstick, Lima Beans and Tomato Curry

The Moringa Pod, better known in India as the drumstick is used to prepare a variety of South Indian dishes. It is usually used in sambhars or can be fried. During my trips back home, it was always a special treat to get drumstick made in any form.In this recipe I have used it to make a curry with Tomato and Lima Beans. Enjoy with hot chappatis or naan or rotis :)
