Recipe for kollu paruppu chutney made with dry roasted horse gram ground with spices. Best accompanied with idli and dosa. Recipe with step by step pictures.

We have been conditioned by corporates to think that milk = calcium. In reality, there are a lot of plant foods and grains that are so rich in calcium. 100 grams of milk contains 125mg calcium while 100 grams of horse-gram has 287mg of calcium. Horse-gram is also rich in iron and phosphorus. Horsegram is a staple in our home and we consume it atleat once a week. Here is a quick chutney you can make for idli and dosa.

Horsegram/kollu needs to be cleaned first. It almost always has some small stones and sand particles. Just take half a cup of lentils and spread it on a plate and slowly remove the stones and sand. Set aside.

For the chutney
Dry roast the lentils on a low flame until the colour of the lentil darkens and the lentils start to crackle here and there. We say that the lentils are well roasted if you hear them making “sattu-buttu” sound. Once the lentils are roasted, set aside on a plate to cool.

Also, dry roast the red chillies until fragrant. Take a mixie and add in the roasted horsegram, dry red chillies, fresh shredded coconut, tamarind and a small piece of jaggery. Add in the salt and asafoetida. Add in half a cup of water.

  1. tried this with idlis for breakfast and it came out great. my husband and i had never eaten this type of chutney or used horsegram before so happy to try something new.
    one clarification – my horsegram never made much of a sound when i roasted in the wok – how long would you say it takes to roast on low heat?

  2. I tried this tonight for dinner. It came out well and my family relished it. Thank you for sharing. Love your recipes for their subtle taste.






  3. Hello ma’am, appreciate your efforts and I have followed some of your recipe and earned praises from my family. Thanks to your blog which simplifies recipes that looks and sounds complex.

    I wonder if one can boil horse gram and use the boiled gram for chutney and simultaneously use the water for preparing kollu rasam ?

    I tried this method with black eyed peas and it came out well , including karamani rasam.. maybe you can consider to try this and use it for your blog.

    Regards
    Manoj
