Greengram,Potato & Carrot Kootu

Once a week, its quite an obligation for me to make out some dals based gravies, sometimes i'll go for an easy breezy comforting dals. Yesterday i tried this kootu with greengram,potato and carrots,they turned out simply delicious,nutritious and definitely fingerlicking. Usually i make kootu simply with a masala paste prepared with coconut,green chillies and cumin seeds,this time i prepared a quite different masala paste using some spices along with grated coconut, this kootu turned out super delicious,prefect to serve along with rice,rotis and dosas.

We had our lunch and dinner with this kootu, serve it with some spicy fries for our lunch,you will definitely have a wonderful lunch.Personally i felt this kootu tastes super delicious when served as side dish along with crispy dosas.Sending this kootu to Dish it Out-Greengrams,Potato & Carrot guest hosted by Sara, event by Vardhini,to my own event Healthy Vegetarian Side Dish guest hosted by Vardhini....
