Easy Kootu

Moong Dhal--------------------------1/4 cup
Vegetable(ANY one)------------------250 to 300 gms
Turmeric powder-----------------------1/2 tsp
Hing-----------------------------------A liberal pinch
Salt ----------------------------------- To taste
Curry powder--------------------------1tbsp
Grated coconut(optional)----------------2 tsp
Oil--------------------------------------1tbsp( if you like you can add 1 more tbsp too)
Mustard seeds--------------------------1/2 tsp
Curry leaves----------------------------- few

This is a very easy Kootu to make.As I told for the other kootu with Moong Dhal(Payatham Paruppu), we can use any of the vegetables mentioned in that post. This one I made with Avarakkai(Broad beans).Cook the vegetable with the Moong Dhal with turmeric powder and hing.After it is cooked  add salt and stir.Add the curry powder and the grated coconut on top of it. Heat oil and  add mustard seeds and pour it hot on top of the curry powder and the grated coconut.Mix well  and add the curry leaves.If you want you can cook the moong dhal and vegetable in a pressure cooker too(with hing and turmeric powder).Then the remaining part is the same.
