Add enough water to cover the vegetables. Pressure cook for two to three whistles.After few minutes, remove the lid from the cooker and slightly mash the vegetables.In a kadai put the oil and when it is hot add mustard. When it pops up add urad dhal, cumin, asafotida powder, curry leaves and fry for a second. In this seasoning itself, add sambar powder and just fry for a second. Now add the cooked vegetable and mix it well. Finally add salt and once again stir well and remove. Notes Adding sambar powder in the seasoning will give nice flavour to the kootu. (But ensure not to burn the powder). You can use any type of available vegetables. I used broad beans, one small potato with skin and one small brinjal in this Kootu.
Could you please tell what other vegetables can I use. Could you specify it.
You can use any vegetable for Kootu. Chow-chow, Ridge Gourd, Bottle Gourd, Snake Gourd, Pumpkin – both yellow and white, brinjal etc are commonly used for Kootu. You can check all Kootu recipes in my “Kootu” catagory.
