Kothsu (Brinjal, Pumpkin, Chow Chow, etc.,)

I use the same method for all Kothsu's... Take whatever vegetable you would like to have it for Kothsu. Pressure cook it with tomato, salt and water. Mash it and keep. In a separate pan, heat oil, add all that is needed for tempering, fry for few seconds and to that add the mashed vegetable and boil it till the raw smell goes off. Kothsu is ready.

Any vegetable (Brinjal, Pumpkin, Chow Chow,Surakkai, Podalangai, Peerkangai and the list goes on..) - 1/4 kg
Tomato - 2
Green chillies - 2
Red Chillies - 2
Mustard, Urad - 1tsp
Oil - 3 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Salt - as per taste
Onion - 1
Curry leaves - few

Pressure cook vegetable and tomato with salt and water. Mash it and keep.
Heat oil, add mustard, urad, slitted green chillies, red chillies, hing, curry leaves, chopped onion one by one and fry for few seconds.
Add the mashed brinjal and tomato and let it boil till the raw smell goes off.
That's it !!! Kothsu is ready ...
