Carrot & Tomato Kootu [No grinding]

This carrot & tomato kootu is the easiest kootu to make especially in the morning rush when you need to pack lunch. The best part of it is you don’t need to grind anything, yes I can lot of smiles in all of your face. I make this kootu when I am totally tired and when I don’t want to cook, but still have to cook. It is so easy, just add everything to the cooker, pressure cook it and then finally temper it. See how easy it is? Still a very healthy and hevenly tasting kootu. Now let’s move on to the recipe.

Here’s how to make Carrot & Tomato Kootu with step by step photos…
