Hi,
As Madhu said it is called 'navilu kosu' in kannada, and I add it to sambhars along with other veggies. Never made anything out of it as a main ingredient though. Can't wait to know what u r going to make......

Finally one I could have guessed! Kohlrabi is one vegetable that intimidates me. I'm late to the guessing game, but also can't wait to see what you make with it :)

Vegan Knitting said...

I knew it too! I first became acquainted via Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian cookbook (or maybe it was her Eastern veggie cookbook) - either way, I made a sort of salad with it and carrots with a vinegar sauce. I haven't had it cooked though, unless it's what I'm finding in my Sambhar when I go to my favorite South Indian restaurant (Vik's Chaat Corner in Berkeley, CA).

Anupama said...

Arre yaar it is that boring naval kohl which probably is eaten mostly by the bhaajiwalaas themselves as no one buys that dull and drab veggie.

Vaishali said...

Thank you ALL for participating. It was fun to read all your comments.

Vegan Knitting, welcome to my blog. I checked out yours, and it is interesting. Just like you have never used cooked Kohlrabi, I have never used it uncooked. Blogging does widen our horizons, doesn't it?

Anupama, hahahahaha...That was a mean (Grrr...) but funny comment. See you around more often.

It is called Khol Rabi and it is very rich in vitamins and anti oxidents. It belongs to the same family as cabbages ie Brassica species. In south India we make sambhar with it by cutting it into 0.5 thick slices and adding it. It can be added to cabbages to make sambhar as well. It is called navilu kosu as in Kannada kosu means cabbage and the upper leafy strucuture resembles the plume of the peacock whihc is called as Navilu in Kannada. If you want to prevent cancer and add fibre to your diet use this vegitalbe as it is cheap and very rich in antioxidents.
