Poritha Kootu- A side dish

Ingredients (Translation)

Vegetables like chowchow, brinjal, pumpkin, carrot, beans, cabbage
4 tbsp green gram dal
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
Asafoetida - a pinch
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
2 tbsp grated coconut
1 tsp oil

For Masala

1 tsp Coriander seeds
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Blackgram dal
2 Red chillies
1 ½ tsp Bengalgram dal

In a microwave safe bowl, add the oil and masala ingredients and micro high for 30 seconds. Now grind it into a fine powder along with grated coconut.

Cut the vegetables into equal and small pieces, add green gram dal and sufficient water. I have used cabbage here.

Add turmeric powder and a few drops of oil to prevent it from spilling. Microwave on high for 10 minutes, stirring in between atleast twice and checking if more water is required.

Once the vegetables and dal is cooked, add the masala powder, salt, curry leaves, a pinch of asafoetida and microwave high for another minute.

It can be mixed with rice and it also serves as a side dish for rotis.
