Drumsticks (moringa) curry

This is one of my Mum's recipe and I am posting it without modifying the original recipe. Drumsticks curry is one of my most favorite curries and my mum's Drumsticks curry is the best i have ever tasted. 

It is a little spicy but decrease the quantity of Red chillies you add to make it less spicy.
