Horsegram stirfried, Muthira Thoran



Horse-gram 1 cup

Onion chopped 1 nos

Green chillies chopped 3-4 nos

Turmeric powder 1/4 teaspoon

ginger chopped 1 teaspoon

Vegetable oil 2 tablespoon

Salt to taste

Grated coconut 1/2 cup or Desicated coconut 2 tablespoon

Cimin seeds 1/4 teaspoon.


Clean and wash the horsegram thoroughly and soak it in water overnight.

After soaking drain the water and cook the horse-gram adding enough fresh water (2-3 cups) and a bit of salt using a pressure cooker.

Allow enough time to pressure cook while horse-gram takes more time to become tender as other pulses.

When cooked remove from heat and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onion, chopped ginger, green chillies and saute till they change colour.

Now add the cumin seeds and turmeric powder and mix well and saute for a few minutes more.

Add the cooked horse gram and grated coconut to the pan and mix well.

Cook for a few more minutes on low flame with lids on till the coconut is also cooked.

If more water from the cooked horse gram is left in the pan cook till all the water is evaporated stirring the curry well.
