This chutney is a special treat from Kongunadu. Normally Horse gram recipes are prepared to treat Cold at my places. This goes good with white rice.
|Curry Leaves||1 strand|
|To Pressure Cook:|
|Horse gram/ Kollu||1/2 cup|
|To fry :|
|Coriander Seeds||2 tsp|
Chop the onion. Pressure cook Horse gram/ Kollu, Turmeric, Tomato and oil – 1/2 tsp with 2 cups of water for 2 whistles and in low flame for 5 min. When the pressure is released filter the water. Use the water while grinding chutney or it can be used to make Rasam.
Fry the items listed under “To fry” section for 3 min in the given order. The onion should have the little raw smell to give the authentic touch.
Grind the pressure cooked and the fried items with salt and curry leaves to fine thick paste. Add less water while you grind.
