Bowls Of Goodness: Moringa Kootu In Pretzel Bread Bowls

Crispy bread bowls filled to overflowing with drumstick/moringa leaves kootu.

Drumstick leaves are highly nutritious and pairing it with dal and some bread makes it a complete healthy meal. Kootu is a slightly thick consistency dal made with some lentils, veggies, ground coconut paste and spices. I reserved some golden, buttery pretzel bread for yesterday night dinner and thought to pair it with this kootu for lunch. It’s not only delicious but beautiful too. You will never look at dal/kootu the same again. Enjoy!
