Muthira(Horsegram) Sundal

Muthira is known as horsegram,kollu n it will helps to reduce unnecessary fats from ur body..its well recommended to have horsegram recipes twice r more than that in a week while dieting...i did sundal with horsegram with grated veggies ..they tastes like beach sundal...here we go...


1 cup Kollu(soaked)
1 no Onion chopped
2 nos Green chilli
1/2tsp Ginger chopped
1/4tsp Mustard seed
1/2tsp Urad dal
2Tbsp Grated coconut
1/4tsp Fennel seed powder
1 T Grated mango
1 no Carrot(grated)
3 nos Curry leaves
2 nos Garlic pods
Salt as per taste
2 tsp Oil

Soak horsegram over nite r atleast for 5 hours...dont pressure cook them, coz they may well cooked n wont be perfect to make sundal...take the pressure cook add 2 cups of water n salt n heat them in high flame, once they starts boiling add the soaked horsegram, keep the lid slightly open n cook them for 20 minutes in medium flame, check whether they r cooked, once they r cooked drain them with a colander n keep aside...

Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard n urad dal n fry them until they splutters, now add the nicely chopped onions n stir them until they turns transculent, cut the green chillies into small round pieces n add them to the well cooked onions, followed by grated carrots,curry leaves, fennel seeds, ginger..smash the garlic pods n add them too..stir everything well..let them cook for a while...once they r done, add the already cooked horsegram n mix everything well...add the grated coconut n grated mango..n stir them well..close the lid, put the flame in simmer, stir them for a while n put off the stove..

Serve them hot ...a very good snacks with plenty of proteins...
