Hurli saaru/ Horse Gram Rasam


Horsegram or Hurli is a kind of a bean. This is usually fed to horses and cattles.This has unique taste and the rasam made out of this is very flavorful.This is one of my favourite kind of rasam and a popular dish in Karnataka.Usually people make this rasam in winter.

Jeera- 1 tsp
Coriander seeds- 1tsp

For seasoning:
