How to Make Mixed vegetable kootu under 30 mins

  • Pressure cook all the vegetables with the moong dal, add a little salt and turmeric powder.
  • Grind the coconut, green chillies and pepper corns to a smooth paste.
  • Once the veggies and dal are cooked, transfer to a kadai.
  • Then add the ground paste and cook till the raw smell disappears.
  • The kootu should have a semi-solid consistency, so add minimum water while cooking the veggies.
  • Heat oil in a small fry pan, add the curry leaves, mustard and urad dal.
  • When the mustard splutters add this garnish to the kootu.
  • This kootu can be used as an accompaniment with sambhar/rasam or if made in a more watery consistency can be mixed with plain rice too.
