How to make kollu thuvaiyal–horsegram chutney recipe

After the awareness of how healthy kollu or horsegram is , I have started exploring the possible recipes with it. I decided to make chutney with it as I had once tasted at a friends place years ago but had never bothered for the recipe. I decided to check the Internet for the recipe and found in several sites. So I decided to use my normal thuvayal/chutney recipe ,but added garlic for more taste. It was really delicious and went really well with rice for our dinner one day. Next day, I used the same chutney for dosa and that made a good combination too!!!
