Kootu is a mixture of either one single vegetable and a dal or a mixture of two or more vegetables along with dal. It can be either had as a main course along with rice or as a side dish for rice and Chappati. 

One can make Kootus in a jiffy, if the Kootu powder is handy. This can be made in a quite a good quantity and kept in freezer and can be used to make Kootu.

Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup
Coriander Leaves - 1/4 cup (dried)
