How to make Huruli Usili Recipe (Kollu Sundal - Steamed Horse Gram Snack)

  1. To prepare the Huruli Usili Recipe or the Kollu Sundal, ensure that the horse gram is soaked overnight in enough water. The next day, pressure cook it again for about 5-6 whistles in 2 cups of water. Since the horse gram is very firm, it takes longer to soften.

  2. Once done, drain any excess water from the cooked horsegram and keep it aside. (DO NOT DISCARD THE COOKING WATER, as it contains much of the gram’s healthy nutrients. You can use it to prepare rasam or some other gravy dish).

  3. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat; add in the mustard seeds and urad dal. Allow them to crackle and the urad dal to roast until it turns lightly brown. Add in the chopped onions, green chillies and curry leaves. Saute in medium heat until the onions are tender and the raw smell goes away.

  4. Finally stir in the cooked horsegram and coconut. Check the salt level and adjust according to taste. Stir fry for a couple of minutes and turn off the heat. 

  5. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve the Huruli Usili (Kollu Sundal) as a tea time snack or as salad along with your meals.
