Wishing you all a happy 2013. Starting this year’s first post with a healthy and comforting recipe. This is one of my favorite recipe too. Err I love all rasams so any obviously this is going to be my favorite. Kollu or Horse gram dhal is one of the widely used grams in my native place. This humble legume is the staple food for horses and cattle errr that’s why its called horse gram lentil. It is called Kollu in Tamil, Ulavalu in Telugu and Kulthi in Hindi. It has lot of anti-oxidant properties and also good for diabetic patients. You can read about it here in wiki.
