Horse Gram Chutney / Kollu Thogaiyal

     Horse gram is known to be a healthy ingredient. But not many people know how to make use of it due to lack of popular recipes. Usually we use mashed horse gram for mixing with rice. Horse gram chutney / thogaiyal is an alternative method is equally good in taste. The advantage of this method is that it is easy to prepare than mashed horse gram. Also you can use it along with idli and dosa. Having  horse gram at least once a week is very much recommended.
