Wash and soak horse gram/kollu/கொள்ளு overnight.

Drain the water from horse gram and add fresh water, salt and pressure cook for 4 whistles. Wait until all the pressure releases.

Now drain this water and the keep the drained horse gram separately. Use this water for Horsegram Rasam/Kollu Rasam which I will be posting soon.

We will use the drained horsegram/கொள்ளு to make the sundal.

Heat oil in a pan or kadai, splutter mustard seeds, add cumin seeds, urad dal, dry red chillies, perungaayam/hing curry leaves and fry for about a minute.

Now add finely chopped onions, green chillies and saute until translucent.

Add the cooked horse gram/kollu and give a good stir. Let it stay for 2 minutes.

Finally add grated coconut, adjust the amount of salt at this stage, stir well and switch off the stove.
