Kollu Idly (Horse Gram Idly)

Horse gram is a less popular bean from the family Fabaceae. This is called as Kollu in Tamil and Kulthi in Hindi. Horse gram is said to have medicinal value and they are rich in Iron and molybdenum. 

I prepared this delicious and healthy kollu idly for yesterday's breakfast and we enjoyed it with garlic chutney.

Ingredients :

1. Idly Rice - 4 Cups
2. Horse gram - 1 Cup
3. Salt - To taste





Procedure :

1. Soak horse gram over night.

2. Soak Idly rice for 3 hours.

3. Grind them both separately.

4. Combine ground rice and horsegram, add salt.

5. Mix well and ferment for atleast 8 hours.

6. Serve hot with any Chutney.
