He used to tell me about Kollu Rasam which is famous Kongu recipe which I learnt to make only after marriage. As months passed I heard that horsegram/ kollu is great to add to a weight loss diet.

I have prepared a simple powder recipe that is great to mix with rice/have it warm with a glass of water.
