Sorekayi kootu(Dodhi Curry)

 My sister Asha always makes Sorekayi kootu. She gave me this wonderful receipe. Kootu can be prepared with different vegetables. But sorekayi is main vegetable for kootu receipe.Today I prepared this sorekai kootu. In my hometown we never used this vegetable. This is the first time I am using this vegetable to make Kootu. My hubby loved  it.


1/2 Sorekayi(dodhi)
5-6 tbsp frozen or fresh coconut
2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp jeera
1-2 green chilli(add more for spicy taste)
1 tbsp oil
5-6 curry leaves
Pinch of hing


Grind coconut,coriander seed, cumin seed and cilantro add little water to fine paste with little water. Put oil in kadai. Add turmeric,hing.curry leaves, and salt.  Add grounded masala paste in the oil and boil for 5 mins. Peel the sorekayi and cut into cubes. Boil for 5 mins in lilttle hot water until half cooked. Then add the half cooked dodhi to boiling mixture. Don't add water as sorekai leaves water. Boil for 10-15 mins on medium flame. Don't overcook.  I added coriander so the colour of my kootu is green. Enjoy with chappati or rice.
