Today I am going to share a very healthy, flavourful and delicious rasam – Kollu/Horsegram Rasam/கொள்ளு ரசம். Intake of Kollu/horsegram on regular basis helps in getting rid of fat in our body, maintain blood sugar level and reduces cholestrol. Kollu/Horsegram is one type of bean that is rich in protein, high in fiber, low in calories and easy to digest. Earlier I have posted some kollu recipes like Kollu idli podi, Kollu Salad andkollu sundal. Do check out other interesting and flavourful Rasam/ரசம் Varieties here.

Suggestions:

I have mashed and added kollu when making the rasam it is totally optional.
I have used freshly ground rasam powder to make this rasam, if you want you can replace it with the rasam powder you have prepared already as well.
