Kollu kuzhambu recipe | Horse gram gravy recipe, Village style kollu kuzhambu recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

Kollu, called Horse gram in English is a protein-rich superfood. We South Indians make kollu rasam, kollu podi, kollu paruppu, kollu kuzhambu out of this. I have tried the North Indian version of Horse gram paratha too. Horse gram aids in weight loss too.

I wanted to try this kollu kuzhambu for a long time. I happened to get Kollu from the Indian shop in Hongkong and tried the kuzhambu at home. It was a super hit at home. The addition of small onions and garlic enhanced the taste of the kuzhambu.

Kollu kuzhambu stays good for a week in the fridge. We are not adding any coconut in this recipe, so it will stay good. If you want to add coconut to this kollu kuzhambu, you can add 2 tbsp of coconut while grinding.
