Sorakkai Kootu | Cooks JoyKootu is a lentil gravy and there are a lot of variations. Here, I have used kootu podi that simplifies the process a lot. I usually make the podi in bulk and store in air tight containers. Since this is a one-pot dish, it is perfect for the weeknight dinners. Kootu goes well with rasam rice, rotis, etc. Off to the recipe.

My Notes
If not using a pressure cooker, it takes time for the lentils to cook.
