Cabbage kootu

Kootu is a very easy and healthy dish. A lot of vegetables can be prepared this way and it goes well with both chapathi and rice. I usually make kootu with chayote squash, cabbage, snake gourd, yellow squash and spinach.


Ingredients:

Cabbage (chopped) - 2 cups
Tomato (chopped) - 1/2
Moong dal - 2 tbsp
Green chilly - 2
Coconut (shredded) - 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds (jeera) - 1 tsp
Salt - as needed

Seasoning:
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Split urad dal - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Oil - 1 tsp

Method:

Pressure cook the cabbage, tomato, moong dal and one slit green chilly with 1 cup of water for one whistle. Grind the coconut, one green chilly and jeera with 2 tbsp water. After the pressure has subsided, open the pressure cooker, add salt and heat the pressure cooked cabbage till all water evaporates. Add the ground mixture and cook till the raw smell disappears (about 5min). Heat 1 tsp oil in a small pan and add the seasoning ingredients. Remove from heat when the mustard starts to splutter and then add it to the cabbage pan. Serve hot with rice or roti.
