KOLLU PODI RECIPE
 Kollu podi recipe, healthy podi varieties with step by step pictures
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 .

INGREDIENTS:

KOLLU | HORSE GRAM 1/2 CUP
TOOR DAL 2 TBLSP
OIL 1/4 TSP
DRY RED CHILLI 2
BLACK PEPPER 1 TSP
GARLIC 2 PODS (OPTIONAL)
ASAFOETIDA A PINCH
SALT AS NEEDED

METHOD:

  • Heat a pan and add oil to this. Roast the horse gram | kollu  and toor dal to this and nicely roast it without getting burnt. Keep it aside and roast the red chillies, garlic (if using), black pepper, asafoetida in a medium low flame. In the last add salt and switch off the flame.

  • Combine the roasted kollu and spice mixture. Allow them to cool completely. Grind it into a fine powder using a mixer.

  • 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.

i too used to grind this podi. But my version is only horsegram & salt without oil for weight reduction purpose. Tastes good and love to eat rice just because of this podi..

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.
