Beets & Oats Kootu

If u r searching for a simple, quick and easy gravy with beets, u have to try out this easy breezy kootu prepared with mungdal and spiced up with a spice powder prepared with coriander seeds, oats, red chillies and fenugreek seeds..This kootu will take less time to get ready, also at the same time u doesnt need to chop onions or tomatoes and u dont even need to saute the veggies or prepare a special masala usually prepared with coconut for making out this kootu... Yeah its coconut free dish and dieting peoples can enjoy this gravy without any guilt since the kootu is prepared with oats..Am sending this delicious and eye catching kootu to Healing Foods-Beets guest hosted by Priya, event by Siri and to Only Event-Low oil/Low Calorie guest hosted by Priya, event by Pari and finally to Akila's Dish Name Starts With B..

Beets & Oats Kootu
