Chow Chow Kootu

    It's my favourite recipe and my relatives often ask to make it when they were here...
I usually make it non spicy, so that the veggie gives a mild sweetness, which is loved by us.
Incase you wanna have a spicy kootu, increase green chilly...


Tur Dal - 1 handful
Chow Chow - 1
Salt to taste
Oil to temper
Curry leaves - few
Mustard - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric - 1 pinch

To Grind: (Grind it without adding water, Coarsely)
Coconut - 1 tbsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Garlic - 1 pieace
Green chilly - 1 no. (Small)

Peel the skin and cube the Chow Chow and keep it aside.

Wash and Pressure cook the tur dal along with turmeric.
Once it is cooked well mash the dal and add chow chow , allow to have one more whistle.
In a pan heat oil and temper with mustard, curryleaves and add the coarsely grinded coconut mixture.
Now add the pressure cooked dal and chow chow to this and add salt.
Simmer for 2 minitus or until the proper consistency achieved.
Serve it with Rice.

Color differs by addition of turmeric...
