Horsegram is the staple food in regular diet of kongu people. They add this horse power lentil in various yummy forms. They discovered different versions like kollu paruppu, kollu podi, kollu rasam, kollu sundal and so on. Still experiments are going on to innovate more delicious horsegam recipes. :-)

We are going to make kollu milaku kuzhambu in this page.


Cooked horsegram
Coconut gratings two tablespoon
Fried bengal gram one tablespoon
Garlic pods two
Fenugreek powder one pinch(dry roasted)
Asafoetida one pinch
Tamarind one marble size
Poppy seeds one spoon
Jaggery one small piece
Coriander leaves chopped half cup(optional)

Coriander powder one spoon
Turmeric one spoon
Cumin Seeds one spoon
Pepper seeds half spoon
Tomato half

For seasoning:

Sesame oil two tablespoons
Mustard seeds one spoon
Shallots peeled and chopped half cup
Curry leaves 20


Grind all the ingredients together in a blender into a fine paste except tomato and cooked horsegram.
Heat the wok with sesame oil and add mustard seeds.
Allow to crackle.
Add shallots and curryleaves.
Saute them for a while until the shallots turn translucent.
Add the paste in the oil for a few minutes in a low flame.
Add chopped half tomato and saute again. 
Transfer the cooked horsegram.
Adjust the consistency with one cup of water.
When the kuzhambu gets concentrated into a gravy texture, switch off the flame.

Kollu milaku kuzhambu is ready to have with hot steame rice.

It smells heavenly. It is glistening. Its taste is great.
