Nool Kol Masala (Turnip/Kohlrabi Masala)

I am not a great fan of this nool kol, and I don't prefer this in my kitchen a lot. But recently when I was to shopping, saw these kohlrabi, and thought why not give a try. But my thought was wrong. It tastes really very good. 

This nool kol masala is a delicious and tasty masala, that can be had with rice or with chapathis even. The coconut masala we add in it gives a very good flavor for this recipe. 


Nool kol/Kohlrabi - 1 (cut to small pieces)
Onion - 1 (finely chopped)
Tomato - 1 (cut to small pieces)
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Dhania/Corriander powder - 2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Cilantro/Corriander leaves - to garnish
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp

For grinding:
Coconut - 3 tbsp
