3 Parupu Kootu (3 பருப்பு கூட்டு)

3 parupu kootu is a very tasty kootu that is made with three types of parupu (dals). This recipe is for pumpkin kootu, but chow chow, cabbage can also be made like this. This is very healthy and rich in protein. This is pretty easy to do. Adjust chili and salt to taste. This is another homey food that I do quite often but never got a chance to take a picture..
