Kollu/Horse Gram Gravy

     This is MY "SALEM" special. Weekly once they use to prepare this in different forms. I like to share my old memory of this recipe. Being a very big family and each of us staying in different places, we use to gather in my granny's house during our childhood summer vacation. On the day one, my granny's recipe will be this. She prefers to prepare this ONLY in Traditional way using mortar and pestle. Whenever she starts her preparation, there will be a big fight among us (grandchildren) to help her. Me, will be the WINNER as always to help her, b'cos am the first grandchild among all.... Yipppeeee !! Do you know the funny No No CRIMINAL reason behind my GREAT helping mind? so that i can taste/lick the Kollu while grinding without my grandma's knowledge :P "Thirudi sapadra sogame sogam". Eventhough, my lil finger will get smashed inbetween will not change my helping (read it as "licking KOLLU") mind, Paavam old lady know. He he :) Missing all those (G)olden days & moment now :( With this OLD & Sweet memories, sharing this special recipe for ur views.....


ALL YOU NEED:

Horse Gram 1 cup
Chopped Big Onion 1 No.
Small onion 5 Nos.
Chopped Tomato 1 No.
Tamarind Syrup 1/4 cup
Turmeric Powder Pinch
Chilly Powder Pinch
Pepper Corns 2 spoon
Cumin Seeds 1 spoon
Coconut 2 pieces
Garic 4 flakes
Curry leaf 2 Twigs
Coriander Leaf 1 Twig
Mustard 1 spoon
Salt To Taste
Oil 3 spoons

METHOD:
     Soak Horse gram overnight. Pressure it for 10 minutes in simmer after a whistle. Once the pressure goes off, coarsely grind the gram and keep aside. Grind pepper corns, cumin seeds, Garlic flakes, Coconut pieces along with required chilly powder to a fine paste. Keep a pan, heat a spoon of oil. Saute chopped big onion until it turns golden color. Add chopped tomato saute it finely. Then add both the grinded mixture (Horse Gram and Pepper corn items). Pour a cup of water along with Tamarind syrup. Adjust with salt. Give a hard stir without any lumps of grinded horse gram. Allow it to boil. Meantime, lets start our garnishing procedure. Take a fry pan, heat a spoon of oil. Let the mustard get splutters (Its Rhyming :P), add small onion, curry and corainder leaf, fry it for few minutes. Add the garnished item into the gravy, Allow it to boil, until the raw smell of pepper masala goes off. Serve hot with steamed rice.

Note:Take a bit care on the amount of chilly powder while adding as we have pepper corns masala.
