Kootus — or koottus — are a moist but not too saucy vegetable and lentil dish popular in South India, commonly served with rice or Indian flat breads. This recipe is ever so slightly adapted from a new-to-me cookbook featuring traditional South Indian dishes called Dakshin: Vegetarian Cuisine from South India. I borrowed it from the library and promptly ordered a copy — this one is very highly recommended.
