Kollu Sundal:

Winter in Bangalore is too cold because of its nature, but due to cut down of trees it is not that cold comparatively to previous years.

To keep ourselves warm in winter, we would tend to eat more snacks. On Sunday, my hubby wanted to have  Kollu Sundal, means Horsegram Sundal for snacks and its rasam. My mother-in-law started her preparation for the same.
Horsegram should be soaked atleast for 5 to 6 hours, then it should be cooked in cooker for atleast 10 to 12 whistles. Horsegram would not lose its raw smell, even after it is cooked. Cooked water is used to make rasam and cooked kollu is used to make sundal.


  • Horsegram – 500 gms
  • Oil – 2 tsp
  • Onion – 4 nos
  • Small Green chillies – 6 nos
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Coconut – 1 (grated)
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander leaves - few

  1. Heat oil in a kadai
  2. Add mustard seeds to the hot oil, and wait till it splutters and add curry leaves
  3. Put chopped onions and fry them golden brown
  4. Add green chillies and salt and fry them for some more time
  5. Pour cooked horsegram and fry them so that onions, chillies, and salt get mixed completely
  6. Put coconut and mix them with the mixture
  7. Sprinkle coriander leaves on them
  8. Remove it from the stove and serve it
