Radish Greens Kootu


I used to make variety of dishes with radish greens and this time I made kootu. Radish greens are an excellent source of Calcium. When compared to the radish roots, greens are six times richer in Vitamin C. The greens also have substantial amount of Thiamine and Iron.




Ingredients :

1. Radish Greens - 4 Cups (Chopped)
2. Toor Dhal - 1/2 Cup (Cooked)
3. Sambar Powder - 1.5 tsp or adjust to your taste
4. Onion - 1/2 Cup (Chopped)
5. Tomato - 1 (Chopped)
6. Salt -Needed qty
7. Mustard - 1 tsp
8. Urad Dhal - 1 tsp
9. Oil - 1/2 tbs
10. Coconut - 1/4 Cup (Grated)




Procedure :

1. In a pan add oil. Heat it and then add mustard and Urad dhal.

2. Now, add chopped onion and tomato. Fry well.

3. Add chopped greens. Fry well.

4. Add water and cook with salt and sambar powder.

5. When greens become tender, add the cooked dhal. Mix well.

6. Allow it to cook for another 5 minutes.

7. Add the ground coconut.

8. Serve with rice/chapathi.
