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.
