Cabbage--------------300 gms
Carrot-----------------150 gms
Cooked toor dhal------1 cup

For the masala

urid dhal-----------------1tbsp
Black pepper------------1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds-------------1/2 tsp
Rice----------------------1 tbsp
Red chilly-----------------2
Grated coconut-----------1 tbsp

Fry all the ingredients in 2 tsp of oil excepting the coconut.Add it after switching off the flame.
Grind it to a smooth paste and keep aside.
In a cooking vessel or a pressure cooker put the vegetables with enough water add salt,1/2 tsp of Sambar powder, little hing and cook.Add the masala and the cooked toor dhal and cook for 5 more minutes.Add curry leaves and temper it with mustard seeds.
Many would have never tasted this kootu at all.It is very unique and my family loves it.For those who don't like  North Indian this goes very well with chapatti too.
