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.
