STEPS
  • Wash horsegram and soak it overnight. Next day drain the water and spread it on a plate and close and keep for 2 days and you will find it nicely sprouted.
  • Alternately you can also drain it and tie in a wet cotton cloth and hang it in a warm place.
  • In a kadai heat oil and once hot add the urad dal and fry till golden brown.
  • Then add the chillis and garlic and fry them too.
  • Then add the onion and saute everything together till the onion turns translucent.


  • Transfer them to a plate and let them cool. 
  • Meanwhile in the same kadai add litle more oil and fry the sporouted horsegram in a medium flame.
  • Keep sauting it well for a good 7 - 10 minutes until the raw smell goes and they are almost cooked as shown in picture.
  • Cool it and grind in a mixie along with salt and tamarind.



  • Add little water while grinding. Then for the tempering add oil in a kadai, once hot add mustard seeds, followed by jeera , hing , curry leaves and dry red chillis.
  • Turn off stove and pour this tadka on the ground chutney.


  • Horsegram doesnt taste great, so you have to add more chillis and tamarind to bring some tangy and spicy taste in the chutney.
  • Serve with hot steamed rice, or even idlis and dosas. 



With Love,
