Our fellow blogger, Jayashree Kailas of Experiments in Kailas Kitchen. She is a wonderful blogger who have passed away on 12th of October due to Pneumonia. Though I have not interacted with her much, I have always liked and reffered to her blog posts, when it comes to cooking Kerala stylerecipes.

I make Paruppu podi and keep stock regularly as kids love it. But, this seems to be quite different. Kollu Kalathu Podi. I have herd that eating Kollu (Horegram) helps in weight reduction and also in reducing cholestrol level.

Horsegram (Kollu) - 1 cup
Bengal Gram Dal - 1/4 cup
Urad Dal - 1/4 cup
Peppercorns - 1/4 tsp (or 4 to 6 corns)
Asafodeita - 1/2 inch piece
Red Chillies - 4 to 6 nos
Salt as required

Dry roast the dals one by one in a pan till they release a nice aroma. Add 1/4 tsp of gingely oil and fry asafodeita, red chillies, pepper corn. Allow it to cool and grind Horsegram first to a fine powder then grind all the other ingredients together and mix well.

Serve with hot white rice and ghee or gingely oil.
