Kohlrabi Kootu

Kohlrabi Greens

I recently came to know that  kohlrabi is rich in vitamin C and fiber. One cup provides about 120 percent of  vitamin C. Let us include kohlrabi in our weekly shopping list to ward off colds.


Kohlrabi -  3                            
Chana Dal - 1/4 cup
Coconut -  4-5 tbsp
Tomato - 1 small (optional)
Red Chilies - 2
Green Chilies -1
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Garlic  cloves - 2

For tempering
Mustard Seeds
Curry leaves
Small Onion

                 Soak channa for ½ an hour and pressure cook with little turmeric and keep it aside.Make sure it's not mushy.  Peel and dice Kohlrabi. Cook in little water till it become soft. Grind the coconut, chilies, cumin seeds to a smooth paste along with garlic at the end.  Now add the coconut mix and cooked dhal to the vegetable. Add chopped tomatoes and salt. Let it cook for few minutes.Temper the mustard seeds,
 add chopped onions, curry leaves and hing and add the seasoning to the kootu.
