I need not waste my time or test your patience,  telling how this gothsu derived its name.....always, it is served with Ven Pongal in most of the weddings during breakfast. There are many types of Gothsus, but this gothsu is so tasty and delicious and a perfect combo for Ven Pongal, so they both become a part of  the Inseparable Combos. Lot of vegetables, little bit of dhal, tomatoes all make this a nutritious Gothsu too.


                                            Split mung dhal - 1/4 cup, soaked for 30 minutes
                                             Big onion - 1, finely chopped
                                             Carrot - 1, finely chopped
                                             Potato - 1, finely chopped after peeling the skin
                                             Green chilly - 1, slit
