Ulavalu Chutney/Kollu Paruppu Chutney

One day of food outside oh thats common, two thats okie too, third and the fourth oh thats definitely bad... I said, this is not India to get Indian food; Krish looked at me and smiled and answered "You are becoming crazy about Indian food these days". Ofcourse I dont deny the fact, I fall back on Indian food and most importantly all my supplies are vanishing ;). I am always elated and my happiness finds no bound when I see my Orange topped pantry bottles beg me to fill them back!!! "There will be my favorite for lunch" is all I replied. My fav, oh its mostly healthy other than the sweets that I munch he he he!!!

Ulavalu in Telugu, Kollu in Tamil, Kulthi in Hindi and Horse Gram in English; its a very proteinious and a fibre rich dhal. My Naanamma says that horses are fed Ulavalu so they dont put on fat, which helps then be the fastest animal. So true to every word, it reduces cholestrol and any excretion realted problems too. Horse Gram chutney is very easy to make a flavorful and ofcourse tasty too.

As told I made the chutney, Krish came home for lunch and I had a platter full of Annam Muddalu with Ulavalu Chutney there was nothing left and infact we had more food than usual...



Ingredients:

Horse Gram - 3/4 cup
Pearl Onions - 1 cup
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 1/2 tbsp
Coriander Seeds - 1 tbsp
Red Chillies - 5 nos.
Curry Leaves a few
Sesame Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Water as needed



Method:

1. Wash and soak Horse Gram for an hour, pressure cook the dhal with 2 cups of Water until soft and mushy. There will be very little Water left after cooking, just retain the Water.
2. In a pan heat Oil, Mustard Seeds, Curry Leaves; when the Mustard Seeds splutter add the Cumin Seeds and Coriander Seeds.
3. When they turn brown add the sliced Pearl Onions and cook until golden brown.
4. Let it cool and paste it with the Horse Gram and Salt. If the blender refuses to move add the retained Water from the cooked dhal.
5. Do not make it watery, keep it thick and coarse if you like.



Serve with: Steaming Rice and Ghee, mix well with Chutney and make Muddalu or balls.

I love that Horsegram. Beautiful presentation Ramya, must try chutney. We make Huruli Kattu, like thick gravy boiled down to paste, very spicy. Tastes great with rice and ghee just like your's.
