Author: kittymatti / Labels:

Morkootu can be made with either vazhai thandu (banana stem), white pumpkin or chow- chow (chayotes). It is an acquired taste. Serve with rice and a tasy veggie...

1 cup chopped veggies (vazhathandu (banana stem), white pumpkin (pushnikai)or chow- chow (chayotes)).
1 tsp toor dal
1/2 tsp jeera
2 green chillies
3 tsp coconut gratings
1 sprig curry leaves
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp oil for garnishing
3 cups sour curds/ home made yogurt

Cook the desired veggies in water with a little salt. Meanwhile soak 1 tsp toor dal for half an hour.
Grind this toor dal with jeera, green chillies and coconut to a fine paste with water. Add this paste to the cooked veggie and simmer for a few minutes.
Cool completely. Add curds and blend well. Add more salt. Again simmer for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with curry leaves and fried mustard seeds.
