Mulakootal (Vegetables In Coconut Gravy) Recipe

Share this Article

  • To begin making the Mulakootal recipe, firstly wash, peel and dice all vegetables. You can use any vegetables you have at home. I like to use vegetables like carrot, lauki, drumstick, beans, potato, white pumpkin and cauliflower.

  • In a large pot (use an earthen pot if you have, the flavour is lovely)or in a pressure cooker, boil all the vegetables with little water with salt and turmeric.

  • In an another pressure cooker, boil the toor dal and keep it aside.

  • Dry roast all the ingredients for the paste apart from coconut for 2-3 minutes till fragrant and slight brown.

  • Grind together coconut and the roasted spices to a smooth paste adding little water if required.

  • Add the toor dal and coconut paste to the boiled vegetables and let it simmer further for 5 minutes till the flavours have blended and the raw smell of coconut has gone.

  • In a small tadka pan, heat coconut oil and add mustard seeds, red chilly and curry leaves and sauté for 2 minutes.

  • Pour this over the curry and it is ready to be served. Serve Mulakootal with hot steamed rice for a perfect summer lunch.
