Kerala Special Koottu Curry is a delicious vegetarian preparation with a unique flavour. Koottu Curry can be prepared with variety of vegetables cooked together. Here in this recipe I have used  raw banana (ethakka), yam (chena) and black chickpeas (karutha kadala). Koottu curry is a must in  Kerala sadya, grand feast prepared during special occassions in Kerala, South India.

Kerala Special Koottu Curry is very nutritous too as it is a mix of variety of vegetables and hence good for kids. This is one of the best vegetarian dish which can be given to kids as they will love to have variety of vegetables because of its sweet and spicy flavour.
