Cabbage poricha kottu recipe

Cabbage poricha kootu recipe, with step by step pictures and video, a traditional South Indian kootu recipe made using veggies, dal and freshly ground masala. Poricha kootu is a very common item made in Tamil brahmin houses. We make it almost weekly once or twice. I personally prefer to have this with spicy Vatha kuzhambu. During our childhood days, especially when we have summer vacation, my athai used to make mixed veggies Poricha kootu in a large quantity and fry papads and keep. That combo will be so awesome and without bothering about the carbs intake we used to have 3-4 servings of rice for that poricha kootu appalam combo.
