LIMA BEANS SNAKE GOURD KOOTTU:
This is a traditional koottu in Tamilnadu. In the month of January we can get fresh and young lima beans in the market. These lima beans are very tasty They enhance the taste of the usual sambar varieties. They can be even added in non-veg curries.
Lima beans- 100gms
Chopped snake gourd- 1 cup
Split green gram- ¼ cup
Chopped tomato- half cup
Chopped onion- ½
Turmeric powder- half sp
Chopped coriander- ¼ cup
Cumin seeds- ¼ sp
Chilli powder- ¼ sp
Salt to taste
Oil- 2 tbsp
Grind the following o a fine paste:
Shredded coconut- ¼ cup, cumin seeds- ¼ sp, peppercorn-1/4 tsp
Heat a pan and pour the oil.
Add the cumin seeds and when they splutter add the onions.
Fry them well and then add the tomato with the turmeric powder and the coriander leaves.
Fry until the tomato is cooked well.
Add the vegetables with the salt as well as the chilli powder.
When the vegetables are almost cooked, add the ground paste and mix well.
After the vegetables are fully cooked in the coconut gravy, put off the fire.
The tasty kootu is ready now to serve!!

Jowar - 1 cup,
Par boiled rice ( idli rice) - 1 cup
Urad dhal - 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds-1 tsp
Mix jowar, rice & urad dal & wash well.
Soak in enough water for 6-8 hrs.
Grind to a fine batter adding enough water as we do for usual idlies.
Steam hot idlies in the morning!
Add salt & ferment the batter for 10 hrs .
Soft dosais also can be prepared with this idli batter with minimum oil.
It is best not to make it very thin.
