Method For Mixed Vegetable Kootu
Wash and chop all the vegetables of uniform size.In a pressure cooker base,add the dal,chopped vegetables,finely chopped tomato,salt and water.Add the required water, a pinch of sugar and pressure cook in high flame for one or two whistles.
In the mean time grind all the ingredients given under”to grind” to a smooth paste adding water.First grind the coconut,chillies.Lastly add the small onions,rice flour and jeera.Run it twice.
After the steam is released,mix the vegetables and add the ground paste.Add little water based on the consistency u need.
Allow it to boil for few minutes till the raw smell emanates.
Lastly, temper all the ingredients given under “to temper” in coconut oil.This is the highlight of this recipe.So do not skip this step.Mix well.Serve with rice.
Use any vegetable like carrot,potato,beans,cabbage,cauliflower,peas,yam,sweet potato,raw banana,colocasia,field beans etc.For the above recipe,i used 2 small carrots,8-10 beans,1/2 raw banana,2 small potatoes, 5-7 broad beans.
Omit small onions if u make it for occasions.Still it tastes great.
For variations,u can omit tomato and add few pieces of raw mango or a tbsp of curd at the end like we make for avail.Sometimes we make this way too.
U can also add little milk at the end to adjust the thickness.
