Carrot N Bokchoy Poricha Kootu

I had recently poricha kootu when i went to my friend's place for lunch, i got hooked to this delicious dhal curry spiced with coconut, cumin seeds and green chillies which pushed me to try out once i came back to home, i tried out with carrots and baby bokchoy leaves which suits prefectly to make this simple but yet delicious kootu...Carrot and bokchoy leaves together made this kootu more delicious and we loved having it for lunch also for dinner with chappathis..This poricha kootu recipe is definitely a keeper for me, to come up with different veggies..With papads and potato roast this poricha kootu will tastes definitely a divine... This healthy and colourful kootu goes to  Sanghi's FIL-Carrots n also to Sowmya's SWC-Cooking with Greens...

1tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)

To Grind:
1/4cup Grated coconut
1tsp Cumin seeds

Grind all the ingredients from the list 'To Grind' as fine paste with enough water..meanwhile heat enough oil and add chopped onion, chopped tomato pieces and cook until the onions turns transculent, add immediately the carrot pieces, stir until the carrots turns bit tender.. Add the bokchoy leaves and saute for few seconds, immediately add the cooked masoor dal, water as per need and grounded paste with salt and cook until the veggies get well cooked...

Heat oil again in a pan and add the mustard seeds, urad dal, asafoetida powder, curry leaves and dry red chillies and fry..add this tadka to the cooking kootu, also add the chopped coriander leaves, lemon juice and put off the stove..
