Horse gram or Kulthi is a widely pulse consumed in South India. These beans are rich in nutrients. We can make kollu soup or rasam for weight loss. My MIL makes paruppu podi with kollu as main ingredient. For paruppu podi, we use variety of dals. But this kollu podi is simple. Kollu with pepper and cumin aids in weight loss as it is less in carbohydrates and more in protein which helps us to feel stuffy and reduces the carving for junk food. The health benefits and medicinal purpose of horse gram have been recognized by Indian Ayurvedic Medicine and Siddha medicine. We can mix this Kollu podi (Horsegram Spice Powder) with rice along with a teaspoon of gingelly oil or ghee and enjoy the dish!
