Knol Khol Kootu | Kohlrabi Kootu

Sharing is caring!

For this weekend Cooking, it was a simple Methi Dal with Knol Khol Kootu. Very simple side dish that you can serve with dal and rice. I know the consistency become think as I left it on the stove and forgot for a moment. However taste wise it was very good and that’s what matters in the end.
It’s been a hectic weekend as always and I actually went to office and relaxed! I know that’s bad but what to do when you have to work against things and cook so many for the next and next events that you plan. That reminds me that for the next BM I am yet to prepare. Hopefully I should be able to do them on time.
When I plan, I leave you to read this simple recipe and enjoy!
