Kollu Sundal – Horsegram Sundal

September 29, 2016 Navaratri Special  4 comments

Navaratri is around the corner. This Kollu Sundal is a flavourful and easy sundal to make during Navaratri. The only planning needed to make this sundal is to soak kollu/horsegram overnight. After making the Kollu Rasam, for which I used only a little portion of the cooked kollu, I made this Kollu Sundal. It was so flavourful and filling.

Now to the recipe…

  1. The sundal podi/spice powder gives a very nice flavour to the Kollu Sundal. Do not skip it.
  2. Soaking the kollu atleast for 8 hours helps in cooking it easily. Else u might have to cook for a longer time.
