One of another protein rich food pulses and obviously healthy :). This is very common in Kerala and some even have it with rice porridge. In Hindi its said " kulthi" and in Tamil " Kollu". Its very good for diabetic people too.

Ingredients:

Small Onions - 7-8 nos
Coconut  1/2 cup
Red Chilli Flakes - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Green Chilli - 2 nos
Salt

Preparation:
Clean and soak horsegram in water for 1 hour. Then pressure cook for 5-6 whistles till horsegram are done.

In a pan. add a bit oil and saute onions and garlic till light brown in color. Then add in the coconut and fry a bit till color changes on low flame. Add in the curry leaves and powders and saute for 15 seconds. Add in the cooked horsegram with salt, chilli flakes and cover and cook for 2-5 mins on low flame. Serve warm with rice :)

Cheers,
Neetz ;)
