KOLLU PODI RECIPE | HORSE GRAM PODI

  Hope you all had a wonderful Diwali celebrations. We too had a great Diwali and after having all the sweets and oily food for the past few days, we started craving for a simple food and suddenly i thought about this Kollu podi and made the same today. I have heard that Kollu | horse gram is recommended for people who wants to reduce weight .

METHOD:

  • When done allow the podi to get cool by spreading this in a plate. After 15 minutes, using a clean dry spoon transfer it to a dry container and store it .
  • This can be mixed with hot rice along with few drops of sesame oil.
  • Even you can have this with Idli | Dosa too instead of milagai podi.

  17. Jeyashri your Kollu Podi is a very healthy recipe. I love podi with Steamed Rice Idli. And Hing (asafoetida) always adds a very nice flavor to any dish.
