PAAL KOOTU



Normally making paal kootu is by using red pumpkin . But i tried this paal kootu using Chow chow. It was really good & didnt make much of a difference.

Ingredients

Chow chow-2 cups(finely cubed)
Grated coconut-1 cup
G.chillies-2ea
Milk-1 cup
Urad dhal-2 tsp
Mustard seed-2 tsp
Curry leaves-1 sprig
Jaggery-2tbsp

Method

Boil the chow chow in milk & water until tender.
Blend the coconut, g.chillies to a fine paste.
Add the coconut paste,salt & jaggery to the boiled chowchow mix.
Allow to cook upto 5 -7 mins.
Heat oil in a pan,add mustard seed, urad dhal,curry leaves  & allow to tempering, add to the kootu.

Note:
1. If the kootu looks watery, add 2 tsp rice flour .(while cooking).
2.Suger can replace  jaggery.
