Hurali Chutney | Ulavala Pachadi | Horse Gram Chutney

Hurli Chutney
Hurali / Horse Gram chutney is a Karnataka dish, which is nutritious & tasty. This chutney can be paired up with rice or any South Indian tiffin you like. 
Horse Gram is well know as a staple for cattle & because of the same reason many hesitate on consuming this bean. This bean has medicinal values that can help in reducing insulin & it is also very good for weight management too.
The very familier recipe using this bean is a Andhra delicacy "Ulava Charu". Though you won't use the bean as it is, but we use the water of boiled beans in making this rasam. But this chutney has the full flavor & nutrients of this beans in it.
