This is another kootu we make using channa dhall. Here is the recipe.

  1. Cauliflower florets - 1 cup (chop it)
  2. Channa dhall - 1/2 cup
  3. turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Urad dhall - 1/4 tsp
  6. Channa dhall - 1/2 tsp
  7. Red chillies - 1
  8. coconut - 2 tbsp
  9. Oil - 2 tsp
  10. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  11. Urad dhall - 1
  12. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  13. curry leaves - few
First pressure cook channa dhall with a pinch of turmeric powder in it. Keep it aside. Take a small pan, pre heat a drop of oil, put ingredients 5,6,7 and 8 and fry it till golden brown. Let it cool and grind it into a fine paste. Keep it aside.

Now take a pan, put the cauliflower in it. Add required amount of water, turmeric powder and salt and let it cook. When it becomes tender, add the coconut paste and let it cook for another5 to 7 mts. After 5 mts of boiling, add the cooked channa dhall to it and le everything cook nicely. Turn off the stove and garnish it with curry leaves. This can be a wonderful side dish for chapathi's

I have been trying your recipe for the last 2 weeks. Works great for me.

When you mention channa dhall (for cauliflower kottu), is it the Garbanzo beans or the other dhall which we use it for seasoning ?
