(some people are of the view that brinjal shouldnt be consumed while pregnant...in such cases, you could substitute brinjal with carrots or beans or cabbage or chow chow)
2 brinjals cut into medium pieces (I use the green ones)
1/2 cup green gram dal
2 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Bit of asafoetida
2 tbsp grated coconut
2 tbsp masala powder
Heat oil and add mustard seeds. When it splutters add the brinjals and dal and cook together adding required water. Add turmeric powder, salt and asafoetida.
Grind the masala powder with grated coconut and little water and add it to the kootu. Mix well and in five minutes, it will start getting thick.
Serve with rice or rotis.
