Molagu Kootu

If you love the taste of black pepper, you are sure to love molagu kootu.. Molagukootu can be made with veggies like beans, paithanga (long beans), podalanga (snake gourd), avarakka (flat broad beans), kotharakka (cluster beans), mixed veggies... check out the pic of mixed-veg kootu. My aunt Malathi makes perfect molagu kootu.


For the masala:

oil -2 tsp
1 1/2 tsp urad dal
1/2 sp pepper pods
2-3 red chillies
