Horsegram Idly Podi/Kollu Idli Podi/Horsegram Gun Powder

Horsegram this incredible beans are less known but they have definitely an important place in our weekly menu, i'll make atleast once a week a dish with this horsegram. Also i never forget to make idly podi with this horsegrams, actually i tried this idly podi a year back and completely fallen in love with it. Usually i'll make paruppu podi with usual dals and spices but intentionally i prepared horsegram idly podi since i ran out of channa dal while making my usual batch of idly podi. Trust me, none will find the difference between the usual and this idly podi. A wonderful way to sneak this nutritious horsegram in our diet, its adviced to add this horsegram in our diet if you feel like dieting.

This horsegram idly podi goes awesome as side dish with hot steaming idlies or else with crispy dosas or with uthappams, my personnal favourite is thick vegetable uthappams with this idly podi. Trust me, uthappams tastes simply awesome with this healthy idly podi. If you are planning to make idly podi at home, just give a try to this beautiful,healthy idly podi and am sure you will definitely love it.This podi is going to be a part of Friendship 5 Series an event by Geetha and Savitha.
