Seventh Day of Navarathri –Kollu (HorseGram)  Sundal

Horse gram is also called as kollu paruppu .It has lot of health benefits like lowering cholesterol levels. I made sundal out of this kollu paruppu and is a best evening tea time snack. It’s a healthy lentil which is not so popular. But it has a lot of nutrition and health benefits. Making Sundal with Horse Gram is a good way of adding it to your diet.
