    Hi Mullai,

    Nice recipe, i tried your “CHICKEN KUZHAMBU (Muniyandi Vilas Style) ~ Nattu Kozhi Kuzhambu”, So tasty all my family members loved it. One small suggestion , without soaking also we can prepare the kollu by dry roasting it till black dotes come on it then pressure cook to 5 to 6 whistle comes, then prepare as usual.

      Thank you Anitha🙂that’s works too but just to keep it easy on tummy and digestion I always soak dry beans/ legumes. But your method works too, thanks for sharing with us all🙏🙏

    I knew about the good effect of Kollu – also it is good for diabetes patients. you can add cinnamon to give a flavour which I tried and helped in attracting the family to the kitchen for a taste of this rasam….thanks for the receipe

    Rasam looks Yum.. Yum.. we used to do it at home. We also make Kollu Kanji on weekends. It is simple and healthy. 1 cup – Kollu, 1 cup idli rice, salt to taste

    1. Soak the idli rice overnight in water. 2. Dry roast kollu slightly in an open pan. Remove from heat and let it cool completely. In a blender, using the pulse mode break the roasted kollu to coarse mode (don't make it too fine). 3.Add kollu,rice,salt and sufficient water to the pressure cooker and cook for 4 to 5 whistles. 4. Let it cool down.

    Enjoy hot kanji with some Mango pickle or Lemon Pickle. One can change the rice to kollu proportion depending on their taste. (ie., Rice 1 cup , Kollu 1/2 cup)
