Kollu thuvayal | Horse gram Thuvayal | how to make kollu thogayal | Weight loss recipe | Thuvayal recipes | Horse gram recipes

kollu thogayal

Kollu thuvayal or kollu paruppu is my mil's signature recipe. She prepared this last week and I clicked the snaps. This kollu thuvayal can be eaten by mixing with rice and ghee or oil. With the kollu water, I prepared the kollu rasam which I already posted. There are so many health benefits of kollu and it is very useful in weight loss. Also I already Kollu rasam and Kollu sundal. My MIL says there is another version also in this, which we will see later.  Now we will see this simple version kollu thuvayal.

1. This chilli is very spicy and I added only two of them. You can add more if you want. But adjust according to your tolerance. 
2. If you want you can add 3 small shallots and 5 to 6 curry leaves while frying the ingredients in oil and grind together. 

Healthy and tasty Kollu thuvayal is ready
