    Sankaranthi Kootu

    Ingredients:

    A.P.P-3 to 4 spoons
    Shredder Coconut-3 spoons
    Add 7 veg. or 9 veg. -250Gms.
    Oil for seasoning
    Kari Patha
    Thur Dal-1/2 cup
    Tamarind-A small lemon size
    Soaked Chenna(or ground nut)-A hand full
    Mustard seeds-1/2 spoon
    Powdered Fenugreek-1/2 spoon
    Turmeric powder-1/2 spoon

    Method:

    For this kootu we have to cut many vegetables in big pieces.
    As I told you you can use many vegetables for this kootu at a time, and
    generaly we will add 7,9 veg. for this kootu.
    You have to place all the cut vegetables with dal (Thur dal only) in the cooker with tamarind in a separate cup with water.
    All the other ingredients are same as above and the preparation is also same as above.
    The only difference for "Sambar" and "Kootu" is, Sambar is very watery and the kootu is some what 'thick'.
    Some times by mistake we may pour more tamarind water or more water in dal the kootu may contain more water.
    To make the kootu thick you do one thing.
    Take a small cup and put 1 or 2 spoons of 'Besan' i.e. Channa flour in it and
    add some water in it and make it as a paste.
    Make the gas simmer and add the paste to the boiling kootu and stir it continuously.
    The Channa flour will cook in the excess water and it will make the kootu thicker.
    If you delay starring Channa flour will turn to 'lumps' and it will spoil the kootu.
    So be careful while pouring the flour mixture in the kootu.
    Remove from fire and serve with hot rice and ghee.

    Note : You can also use Puli (Tamarind) Paste in replacent for Tamarind / Tamarind Water specified in this recipe. To know how to make Puli Paste, click here.
    I have given this recipe already and here I gave it again for you.
    You can use, brinjal, yam, chow chow, beans, small ash gourd, sugar potato, SEnai , ground nut, Mochai kottai, avrai kaai etc.,

    You can see that Sankaranthi kootu and puli kootu are almost same. we usually make Puli kootu with one veg. and for sankaranthi kootu which we prepare on Pongal day, we use many veg. that too we add 5 , 7 or 9 types of veg. Hope this helps you.:)

    One of my friends taught me this kootu.

    Cook vegetables alongwith sliced onions,slit green chillies, salt as per taste and add dhal at the end. Let it boil for a while and then remove from fire.

    Though we don`t have the practice of making kootu with onions, this tasted different and am a regular follower of this recipe now.
