Kootu is my daughters favourite and this is the only way she can eat even the veggies she doesnt like - like mother like daughter :) We have a long weekend this week as Monday is a local holiday here, Looking forward for a comforting and relaxing weekend!
1.Grind coconut and jeera to a coarse paste and set aside.Pressure cook toor dal with water until mushy and soft. Mash it well with a laddle and set aside.
3.Then add cooked dhal and required water cook covered until the veggie becomes soft.Allow it to boil and Keep stirring in between.
4.Then add the coconut paste and allow it to boil till it becomes thick.Switch off and serve with hot rice.
- Add the coconut paste only after the veggie is cooked
- The curry will thicken with time so switch it off accordingly.
- You can also replace toor dhal with chana dal.
