  • kollu உடலுக்கு குளிர்ச்சி தரக்கூடியது. இதை அரைப்பதற்கு ஆட்டுக்கல்லை பயன்படுத்தினால், சுவையாக
    இருப்பதுடன் நீண்ட நேரம் கெட்டுப்போகாமல் இருக்கும்.

    This is a good one for health..
    If possible use small onions for this kollu paruppu.. Pressure cook the horse gram alone and after cooking use the water which was used for cooking the grams for rasam (it will be very tasty & more healthy). And grind the cooked gram & small onions (sambar onion),green chilli, curry leaves,coriander seeds/powder (one spoon) try to avoid adding water if not possible just sprinkle the while grinding…

    Yes, Kollu is very good for health. It reduces bad cholesterol. My granny used to make this using ural (mortar-stone). It will be dry (like usili) and we would have it with hot rice and ghee Smile.. nostalgic days..
