Bottlegourd & Sprouted Fenugreek Kootu

Healthy kootu with sprouted fenugreeks and bottlegourd , this kootu goes prefectly awesome with rice and rotis..Simple kootu to enjoy eventhough its really nutritious and tasty, we loved enjoying this kootu simply with pickles and papads....I prepared this kootu little bit thick as i want to serve them along both with rice for lunch and  with rotis for dinner..

Srimathi said... Reply To This Comment

Fenugreek was sprouted and added to the kootu? Priya I know this must have such a great flavor and aroma. Was the sprouted fenugreek bitter?

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

@Srimathi..yep i have sprouted the fenugreek and will freeze them for later use..They were little bitter when compared to the usual fenugreek seeds..Hope i cleared ur doubt..

Thanks Friends for all ur encouraging words..
