Kollu Sundal

Kollu or Horsegram is one among the healthy grains / lentils family. As I mentioned in my rasam post it is very common ingredient in my native place.  Kollu chutney / Thuvaiyal, Rasam, this sundal and just roasted kollu are very common recipes. Basically whenever I prepare kollu rasam, I make this sundal and vice versa. For the rasam you need just a handful of boiled horse gram but at least 2 cups of boiled horse gram water. So I always soak more horse gram  and prepare these two recipes together.


Kollu / HorseGram – 1/2 cup
For seasoning:
  • Oil – 2 tsp
  • Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Urad dhal – 1 tsp
  • Hing – 1/2 tsp
  • Red chilly – 1 or 2
  • grated coconut – 3 tbsps
  • Salt – as per taste
  • Dry roast the horse gram and soak it water for overnight.
  • Then pressure cook it for unto 3 whistles and let it cool down.
  • Save handful of  boiled kollu and the boiled water for rasam and use the remaining for the sundal.
  • Heat the kadai and add oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds, urad dhal, hing.
  • Once mustard seeds splutter, break the red chill into small pieces and add them.
  • Let it splutter for a minute and then add the boiled dhal.
  • Add salt and mix well.
  • Let it cook for 2 mts and then add the grated coconut.
  • Readuce the heat and mix well.. thats it kollu sundal is ready.

This is great snack and also you can try this as one of the sundal for navratri.
