Kulitha Saaru ( Horsegram Saaru)

This is a typical Mangalorean dish i guess! This is a simple & easy to prepare saaru & good for health too.


Horse gram - 3/4 cup
G. Chillies - 4
Garlic - 1 pod
Salt - to taste
Oil - tsp


1. Wash the horsegram & soak it over night with 5 cups of water.

2. Pressure cook the same for 7-8 whistles.

3. Using a strainer, seperate the cooked horse gram & the water.

4. Now grind the horse gram to a fine paste & add to the water. Add in sliced g.chillies & salt too. Stir it well. Bring this to a boil.

5. Season with just garlic sauted in oil.

This simple & tasty Saaru is ready...
