Heat oil in a deep pan and saute it with mustard seeds and curry leaves. Add chopped eggplant and drumstick and fry it well without adding water. Now add chilli powder, turmeric powder and asafoetodia and salt to it and stir fry it. Add tamarind water to it and keep on stirring and close the lid for a while.
