Kootu Curry (Chickpeas, Raw Banana and Elephant Yam with Coconut)


Kootu curry is one of the dishes that is served during traditional Kerala sadya (feast). It is a mixture (kootu) of 'black' chickpeas, elephant yam (chena or suran) and raw banana (plantain) with ground coconut and spices. One special feature of this curry is the use of ground peppercorn (black pepper). I used black pepper for grinding with coconut as well as for tempering. Another feature of the curry is tempering with fried coconut towards the end.
