Kollu / Horse Gram Sundal!

Kollu/Horsegram is very good for health. Its good for lowering cholestrol.

Kollu/Horsegram - 2 cups
Yennai/Oil - 1 tblspn
Kadag/Mustard - 1/4 tspn
Onion - 2 nos
Karuvepillai/Curry leaves - few
Kanja Milagai/Dry Red Chilli - 2 nos
Thengai/Fresh Grated Coconut - 2 -3 tspns(Optional)
Uzhatham Paruppu/Urad Dal - 1/2 tspn

Preparation Method
Soak  kollu/horsegram for 4-5 hours or overnite. Wash and clean it will have stones and mud particles.
Pressure cook with little salt for 3-4 whistles or till its soft with water and little salt. Drain the water (collect it and keep).
Heat a kadai, add oil, mustard wait till it splutters, add curry leaves, dry red chilli, urad dal and saute till the dal is brown. Then add finely chopped onion and saute.
Then add the cooked horsegram and salt. Cook for few mins. Can be served as it is.

Off the stove and add fresh grated coconut and mix.(optional)

Kollu/horsegram Sundal is ready to serve. This can be served evening with coffee or for lunch with sambar or rasam rice. I served with Kollu rasam rice.

Notes - If you want to do the sundal fast and if you forget to soak at nite. Soak the dals in hot water.

With the water I prepared Kollu rasam. This recipe posted here.
