horsegram dal Podi / Kollu Podi

Beginning of 2011 I got one packet of Horse gram powder from one of my cousin and she told me it is very good to control fat level in the body. From there I am using it. If not every day I will use one spoon a day at least 3 times a week. I put it in any gravy / on vegetable. True enough my fat level is at very healthy range from Aug '11. My Gym trainer asked me what I did special that resulted in this... Try this out...


2 cup horsegram dal
Salt to taste
4 strings of curry leaves
6-8 red chillies
1 Tablespoon Black pepper

Dry roast the horsegram and red gram dal seperately till slightly red. 
Dry roast the red chillies amd curry leaves (Keep it in microwave in high power till it is crispy. When u crush it will become powder)

Combine Horse gram, red chillies, curry leaves and pepper in mixie. Let it cool off
Grind to nice powder with salt

Store in an air-tight container. Serve with hot rice and ghee.

Note: If you prefer Chillies than pepper you can add more chillies and reduce the pepper. I prefer pepper taste so I have added more pepper
