Kalle Koora also known as the Mixed Vegetable Koora is a mixed winter vegetable curry or poriyal specially made during Sankranti/Pongal festival using the freshly harvested winter vegetables like Sweet potato, Potato, Broad beans, Carrots and Fenugreek leaves. Living abroad has its own pros and cons but the first and foremost con would be, we miss out on mom's food. Since the day we moved abroad(currently residing in Ireland) i'm missing on this festival treat that has a unique taste and aroma only when my mom prepares it. The cooked vegetables are then seasoned with Nuvvula and kobbari podi (sesame and coconut powders) made by pounding the sesame ladoos made for the Sankranti festival. This recipe for Kalle Koora/Mixed Vegetable Koora Recipe is a nutty, mildly spiced and Sweet poriyal sabzi that goes well with steaming hot rice - A wholesome soul food that represents Telangana culture.
