TOMATO/THAKKALI KOOTU

This is my favrt.. My mom prepares both the tomato kootu and tomato thokku tasty and yummy. Probably my next post will be tomato thokku. Whenever I go to my mom’s place I go by with a lengthy list to make her do for me. And my gal now doing the same prepares two tooooo big lists for her patti and thatha.

Her list for patti is cookery things and for thatha is purchase list. One more spl list she brings to her chitti for handy craft work things and fancy items. We go with two bags and return home with min 4 bags. Ok ok these are all practice in politics ma… hope everyone do the same. Ha!Ha!Ha!....


Lets come to Today’s menu

INGREDIETNTS

Moong Dhal ½ cup
Ripped red tomatoes 3
Onion big 2
Grated Cabbage and carrot each ½ up (optional)
Green chilli 2
For Grinding
Grated coconut ½ cup
Cumin seeds/jeera ½ tsp
Black pepper ¼ tsp
Dried red chilli 3 to 4

METHOD

Par Boil moong dhal and keep aside. Cut all the vegetables and add into the par boiled dhal and cook till everything done. Mean time add necessary salt and turmeric. Grind the ingredients said under for grind. Add the paste into the kootu. Cook for another 8 to 10 mts. Now the tasty kootu is ready to have with hot white rice.

Accompanies well with all thuvayal rice/plain rice/chappati.

Sending this kootu to Sanghi ‘s Fall in love – Tomato Event.

Here i served this kootu with hot white rice along with SEPPANKEZHANGU FRY . Enjoy the platter dears. Dedicating this to my cousin Padmaja who loves this kootu with this curry very much.
