Beetroot, Moong Sprouts & Egg Curry

Beets, Egg & Sprouts Curry, rich, creamy and protein rich coconut milk based curry flavored with Punjabi Garam Masala. This curry goes very well flat Indian breads like roti, naan, chapati or phulka.
I have tried this curry 'n' number of times with different combination of vegetables and never got disappointed. The curry gives mild sweet taste due to the addition of beetroot. But the sweetness doesn't dominate. To make this curry vegan, skip eggs and increase the quantity of sprouts. You can try this with mixed sprouts.

Thoothuvalai Keerai Kootu - Herbal Green Leaf Recipes
Thoothuvalai Keerai Kootu - Herbal Green Leaf Recipes

Thoothuvalai Keerai Kootu, a very healthy curry made from herbal greens and lentils. Thoothuvalai / Thoodhuvalai Keerai is a herbal green  mainly used to cure cold, cough and asthma. Its plant is full of thorns similar to rose plant. Since its thorns are toxic, it would be better to remove the stem part while cleaning. Leaves contain very small sized thorns. But if it has big thorns, then better remove it. This keerai along with many other herbal greens are not easily available, especially at big stores. So get hold of it whenever you see this keerai. You can dry the leaves and prepare podi.
You can either use moong dal or channa dal to prepare this kootu curry. This is purely vegan preparation. This curry goes well with rasam rice or plain rice. If you are looking for more varieties of dal, then do check my post on 40 varieties of dal and sambar. I have also shared Thoothuvalai Rasam and Thoothuvalai Thogaiyal recipe which are healthy and easy to prepare. Do let us know your feedback if you try this recipe.
