Kandi Guggillu or Red Gram Sundal

Last April I visited my grandma's place and brought back some red grams to make guggillu. We can also make kandi pachadi with these red grams.Here is a link to the recipe for kandi pachadi:

What you need:
Kandulu (red grams)-1 cup
Water-3 cups
Mustard seeds-1/4 tsn
Cumin seeds-1/4 tsn
Hing-a pinch (optional)
Dry chilli-2 broken
Chilli powder-1/4 tsn
Curry leaves-a few
Salt-to taste
Oil-1 tablespoon

                                                                       Soaked red grams

  1. Wash and soak the red grams in a lot of water for six hours. Add three cups of water and pressure cook them for four whistles.
  2. After fifteen minutes, open the lid and drain the water. Heat the oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, broken red chilli, hing and curry leaves and let them splutter on a low flame. 
  3. Add the cooked red grams, chilli powder and salt. Saute them for two minutes and turn off the stove. Transfer them into a serving bowl. 
           Spicy and healthy guggillu are ready to eat now. Have them in the evening during tea time. :)

Note: Guggillu can also be made with alasandalu (black eyed peas), pesalu (green gram) or sanagalu (chick peas).
