Are you looking for weight loss recipes and diet food..Then add this in your daily menu..Horsegram is such a healthy grain and it helps in losing weight. After i posted my kollu thogayal recipe, i got so many request to post more kollu recipes. So this is my addition to my kollu dishes.
My grandmas makes this podi and keeps handy. During our lunch time, she put some hot rice in a plate, sprinkles some of this podi, drizzle a tsp of gingelly oil over the rice, mix it up and eat. Then she continues with the rest of the gravies. You can even have this instead of having idli podi. So try this and let me know how it turns out..My next recipe attempt is going to be kollu rasam and kollu sundal...
