VoW - BottleGourd - Kootu

Bottle Gourd is the most favourite veggie for people who wanna reduce weight. It is generally told that veggies that are full of water helps to reduce weight. I make two types kootu one with Toor Dal and one with Moong Dal. The one I make here is with Toor Dal . This entry goes to VoW - BottleGourd.


Bottle gourd - 1 small

Toor Dal - 1 cup.

Coconut - 1 cup

Green Chillies - 2

Curry Leaves a handful

Mustard seeds and oil for seasoning


Cut the Bottlegourd into small pieces and steam cook them along with Toor Dal. Grind the coconut and green chillies to a smooth paste in a blender . In a wok heat oil and season with Mustard seeds along with curry leaves. Add the boiled bottlegourd and the toor dal along with the boiled water. Let it boil for sometime and add salt . Now add the grounded paste and bring the kootu to a boil . Season with fresh curry leaves and serve with Karakulambu ( Receipe follows ).
