Carrot & Peas Kootu

This carrot and peas kootu is bit different from the usual procedure. We don't have to add any dhal. I learnt this from my MIL. This goes good with "Milagu Kuzhambu" & "Kara Kuzhambu"

Ingredients :

1. Carrot - 1/2 Cup (Chopped)
2. Peas - 1/2 Cup (Fresh/Frozen)
3. Coconut - 1/4 Cup (Grated)
4. Onion - 2 tsp (Chopped)
5. Green chilly -1
6. Red Chilly - 1
7. Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
8. Mustard - 1 tsp
9. Urad Dhal - 1 tsp
10. Curry Leaf - For garnishing.
11. Oil - 2 tsp
12. Salt - Needed qty



Procedure :

1. Heat oil in a pan. Pop mustard and then add urad dhal. Transfer this to a bowl.

2. Cook carrot and peas with salt in the same pan.

3. Grind coconut, onion, cumin seeds and chillies.

4. Add the ground paste to cooked carrot and peas.

5. Add mustard and urad dhal. Cook for 5 minutes.

6. Remove from heat. Garnish with curry leaf.

7. Serve with rice.
