This is a gravy-like dish made using pumpkins and dal. Other vegetables like chow-chow, snake-gourd, cabbage, carrots etc can also be cooked this way. Normally, a traditional South Indian meal will definitely include one dry curry and one kootu.

A good accompaniment to this is a cooling raita like Tomato Pachadi , Coconut Pachadi or Cucumber Pachad .
