Kollu Chutney Recipe - Horsegram Chutney for Idli Dosa

Kollu Chutney Recipe

Kollu Chutney is a popular chutney recipe from the cuisine of Kongunadu.Kollu (Horsegram) has a lot of health benefits and works as a great weight reducing agent esp for cholestrol.I have already tried kollu podi(recipe coming up soon) kollu sundal and kollu rasam. Now this kollu chutney is a new addition to my list of kollu recipes.This pairs up well as a sidedish for idli and dosa.You can even mix it with rice and have it.

This kollu paruppu chutney reminded me of kadala chutney though the taste is not the same the texture is smooth like the peanut chutney and we loved it a lot.

  9. I tried this last weekend, it came out so good!

    This is great for a quick/instant/yummy dish. We had it with rice and you were right, the smell of the chutney is that of paruppu but the flavor is very different. Can't wait for your kollu podi post!
