Add the mango pieces,drumsticks,crushed shrimp,green chillies,shallots and the rest of the turmeric powder into a pan and pour enough water to cover the s and bring to a boil, cover and cook until the drumsticks are cooked.(If you are using fresh shrimp  - add it along with the drumstick and mango pieces and cook it )
