Hello Katie,
I´m not sure either, perhaps a dish like potage? Or follow the link to my dhaba.

Hi Helene,

How have you been? Many thanks for your goodwill with regard to the cause.

'Kootu' means a sidedish. In literally sense, it is any accompaniment that goes along with the main dish :-)

How did the recipe fared at your kitchen? Did the recipe perform as described? What suggestions do you have to improve it? Did you or would you change anything to improve it? How would you rate the ease or difficulty of this recipe and would you be inclined to make it again? IF no – why?

You may wonder why so may questions :-) These are prepared for the recipe taste-testers at the group cookbook project. Your inputs will be valuable.

well I took it for a main dish and it worked, because it´s delicious.
I made modifications to adapt it to German taste:
I used 1 instead of 4 peperonis.
I instroduced a slice of ginger, because it´s a favourite.
The recipe worked very well. I like to cook after your instructions.
It tasted marvellously and I´m very sure it will be cooked regularly in my kitchen.
Good luck for your project! :)
