Apart from this kootu, I have tried Noolkol parathas which was a big hit among kids. 

  • 3 Noolkol/Kholrabi (Skin peeled and chopped as small cubes)
  • As per taste Salt
For Grinding:
  • 1/2 Cup Grated Coconut
  • 1 Green chilli (alter according to spice level)
  • 2 tbsp Coriander leaves
  • 1/2 inch length Ginger
For Seasoning:
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
  • A spring Curry leaves
  • 2 tsp Oil


1) Heat oil in a kadai and add Mustard seeds to crackle. Next add Curry leaves and give a quick mix.

2) Now add the Noolkol, Kohlrabi and sauté for few minutes. Add enough water and close it with a lid to cook in medium flame.

3) Grind Coconut, Ginger, Green chilli and Coriander leaves to a fine paste in a mixer.

4) After Noolkol is cooked, add the ground paste, Salt and mix well. Leave to get cooked for few minutes in low flame.

5) Next add Curd and mix well. Leave it till froth and switch off the flame as too much of boiling at this stage will curdle the kootu.

Yummy Noolkol Morkootu is ready.
