Green Tomato Kootu

Its been a long i prepared kootu with green tomatoes, last week i got some fresh green tomatoes from my friend's home grown tomato plant, they were prefect to make some gravies and i dont want to miss this wonderful opportunity to make some green tomato kootu, usually i make kootu simply with a masala paste prepared with coconut,green chillies and cumin seeds,this time i prepared a quite different masala powder using many spices along with dessicated coconut, this kootu turned out super delicious,prefect to serve along with rice,rotis and dosas...We had our lunch and dinner with this kootu, serve it with some spicy fries for our lunch,you will definitely have a wonderful lunch..Personally i felt this kootu tastes super delicious when served as side dish along with crispy dosas..Sending this delicious green tomato kootu to my own event CWS-Mustard Seeds guest hosted by Kiran of Sumadhura and to MLLA#35th Helping guest hosted by Smitha,event by Susan and finally to Kiran's  CWF-Toordal guest hosted by Suma..
