Rajma brinjal potato kootu recipe

kootu in a serving bowl
Rajma, brinjal, potato kootu recipe - I make dal, sambar, saaru, curry or kootu almost everyday. When fresh rajma is not available, I use soaked  dried rajma for the kootu. Brinjal and potatoes are combined in this kootu, to make it a veggie version.The required thickness of kootu can be had with use of  boiled and mashed rajma. The roasted gram dal in the masala paste also gives extra thickness to the kootu. The flavour of kootu is on account of the fresh spices such as coriander seeds, cumin seeds, cloves, cinnamon and fenugreek seeds. Onion, ginger, garlic and fresh coriander leaves enhance the flavour of this kootu.

Carrot tomato soup in serving bowl
Carrot tomato soup recipe - I strongly feel that I am addicted to this deep red coloured soup. Carrot tomato soup is one of my  favorite vegetable soups. So many varieties of soup can be made with vegetable such as cabbage, mushroom, sweet corn, spinach, broccoli etc. This is the soup I made when I strongly desired to have hot soup. Though the tomato is tangy, the taste is balanced by the sweetness of carrot. Hence, this soup is the mixture of tangy and sweet taste. I like it most because while sipping it hot, it gives comfort to throat and immense satisfaction to the brain.

Vegetable cutlet in a serving plate
Vegetable cutlet recipe - This vegetable cutlet is a simple shallow fried snack prepared with easily available vegetables like potato, green peas and carrots. It is a healthy version of snack to serve during the evening with a cup of tea or coffee. Usually  cutlets are deep fried. However, to avoid excessive oil, these cutlets are rolled in bread crumbs and then shallow fried using very little amount of oil. Deep fried cutlets are more tastier because of its oil absorption. But, too much oil is not good for health. So, I prefer shallow fried cutlets. To get more tastier cutlet you can deep fry them by using the same ingredients and method.
