How to Make Maelgu-kozhambhu and more kootaan

  • First cut the vegetable (whichever one you choose), in whatever shape you want it.
  • Wash it thoroughly (anything other than tomatoes) and put it in a vessel.
  • Add turmeric powder, salt and water (just enough to immerse the vegetable).
  • Grind the coconut powder with green chillies and sour curds.
  • When the vegetables are cooked, add the coconut-curds mix.
  • Let it boil very lightly (it should not over boil).
  • Keep aside.
  • Saute the mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, red chillies and curry leaves together.
  • Use this sauteed mixture for garnishing the more-kootaan.
  • Serve hot / cold with steamed rice.
  • Also goes well with chapattis.
