Horse Gram is used in a variety of preparations in South Indian cuisine. Seasoned with either Garlic or mustard and curry leaves, it is high in Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron and Protein. Posting a popular Mangalorean dish called Kulta Koddel which is Horse gram seasoned with garlic in a coconut based gravy. Absolutely delicious!
- 100 gms Horse gram
- 8 Jackfruit seeds
- 1/2 of a coconut grated
- 12 roasted red chillies
- 1 heaped tsp tamarind paste
- 15 cloves Garlic gently crushed
- 2 tbsps Coconut oil
Peel the Jackfruit seeds and cut them into half. Wash them along with the Horse gram and pressure cook along with a little salt. After one whistle, reduce heat and cook for 12 – 15 minutes. Grind coconut, roasted red chillies and tamarind to a smooth paste. Add it to the cooked Horse gram and Jackfruit seed mixture. Adjust consistency by adding water and salt as required. The gravy should be of pouring consistency. Heat oil in a pan. Add the crushed garlic and sauté to a rich golden brown. Drop it into the boiling Koddel. Allow to boil for a couple of minutes. Keep aside for half an hour for the flavours to infuse before serving.
