10 KOLLU/HORSE GRAM PODI(POWDER)


In Tamil, this is referred as KOLLU . Normally used to feed horses. But Cuisines are also common. Kollu porial, Kollu avial, kollu sambar, kollu rasam, kollu dhal. Like any traditional ayurvedic cuisine that is referred as "Food is Medicine & Medicine is food", this is also one such food grain.

Horse gram - 2 cups
Red chillies -4 or 5
Curry leaves - a handful
Hing - a pinch
Salt as needed

Variation:
1. You can use urad dhal - 1 cup and horse gram - 1 cup ...dry roast both seperately and powder together with other ingredients.
2. You can dry roast 1/2 cup of sesame seeds and powder together.

This is one of my mom's recipe/invention...she likes chutney podi a lot so made a lot of use with horsegram/ kollu.

Heat kadai and dry roast horse gram/kollu in medium flame like around 5 minutes ...in the same kadai add 1/2 tbsp of oil and fry red chillies and curry leaves for one minute...add hing and mix once...remove and cool...take both together with salt in a dry mixer or coffee grinder and powder fine...just when you want to have mix with gingelly oil for better taste and use as a dip for idli/dosas.
