Kollu is called as Horse gram in English. Kollu has lot of health benefits and its a suitable diet for reducing weight. We can use this and make thuvyal,rasam,podi,sundal etc.. We use the kollu cooked water and make the rasam . Also strained the kollu and add the tempering to make it as sundal. This kollu recipes i tasted for first time in my hostel and then am a big fan of it. Got this horse gram yesterday suddenly and thought of sharing in blog. Lets quickly look at the recipe of making the sundal.

Method :


1. Wash and soak kollu (horse gram) overnight or minimum 8 hours with enough water. Pressure cook with 1 - 2 cups of water for 5 or 6 whistles. Drain the water from cooked kollu and set it aside. You can use that water to make KOLLU RASAM.
