Beans dual gram Kootu

     When none of the gravy strikes my mind for my lunch, will prepare this kootu which will do dual role as Main Course as well as Sidedish. Yes, for hot steamed rice this will be a gravy and for Rasam or curd rice, this will be a sidedish. What a great (mokkai)idea know :P Atleast weekly once this type of kootu will be my main course. Even though it consume hardly 15 mins for preparation, it is one of the healthiest recipe which will be throughly enjoyed from Toddlers to Old age.

    Mostly i'll prepare Kottu using Bengal Gram or Toor Dhall or Moong Dhall. Not tried using dual dhall at a time. But one day am running out of Bengal Gram, so without any option, tried of adding Moong Dhall to compensate the Bengal gram shortage. Hmm... Its became my one of the tastiest recipe and as i added Moong dhall which looks same as a Dhall Masiyal. I think, this is my "Shortage/Running Out Of" recipe vaaaaaaarrrraaaaammmmmmmmmm (Even my previous post comes under same kinda)



ALL YOU NEED:
Chopped Beans 1/4 kg
Bengal Gram 3 spoons
Moong dhall 3 spoons
Chopped Onion 2 Nos.
Chopped Tomato 1 No.
Green Chilly 2 No.
Red Chilly(Optional) 2 Nos.
Grated Coconut 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder Pinch
Corainder Leaf 1 Twig
Curry Leaf 2 Twigs
Mustard 1 spoon
Ginger (Optional) Pinch
Salt To Taste
Oil To Temper


METHOD:
    Pressure cook chopped beans, chopped onion, chopped tomato, slited green chillies, Bengal Gram, Moong Dhall, smashed ginger, turmeric powder and salt for 10 mins in simmer. Heat a spoon of oil in a pan, add mustard, once it splutters, add curry leaf and if the pressure cooked item is lack of kaaram, add red chillies, saute it for a minute. Then pour the pressure cooked mixture, give a gentle stir. Now, add grated coconut and chopped corainder leaf, mix well with the kootu. Put off the flame. Its time to Serve now.

Note:If you are not a Ginger lover, just skip adding it.
