Hurali Saaru / Horse Gram Curry

Hurali saaru has been one of my favourite dishes since I was a kid. Hurali saaru has a tinge of onion flavour in it, which makes it different from the rest of the rasams/sambhars!!!

I haven't got enough time to go shopping for veggies this week and my pantry has nothing but a couple of onions and potatoes. Thats when I got reminded of hurali saaru!! I got the recipe from my mom and made it yesterday. It turned out a little spicy, but the overall taste was very good!!! Hope you like it too!


1 cup Hurali/ Horse gram, soaked overnight
2-3 tsp Coriander seeds
1/2-1 tsp Jeera
1/2 tsp Black pepper
2-3 Dry red chillies, low spiced
A pinch of hing
3-4 tbsp Grated coconut, Fresh or frozen
1 Onion,small to medium sized
1 tsp Jaggery/sugar
1/4 tsp Tamarind paste
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1-2 tsp Ghee/Clarified butter
1-2 strands Curry leaves
Salt as per taste


  1. Dry roast coriander seeds, jeera, black pepper, red chillies and hing until you smell the fresh masala.
  2. Powder them in a blender without adding any water. To this, add the grated coconut, onion and grind it to a smooth paste using water if required; Keep aside
  3. Pressure cook the saoked 'hurali' with some water. Hurali/horse gram takes a little longer to cook.... So, you might have to cook it for a couple of whistles more than usual.
  4. Add the masala from step 2, to the cooked hurali and boil well. Add water to get the required consistency.
  5. Add tamarind paste, jaggery and salt;Boil further. Adjust the taste according to your wish.
  6. Temper with mustard seeds and curry leaves; Serve hot with rice and enjoi!!!

Here's wishing all you fellow bloggers and readers and very Happy and Prosperous Deepavali!!!!May you be bestowed with all the happiness and health, this festive season..... The "Soft toy" junta at my home join me in wishing you all a very happy festival!!!! :)
