Molake Hurulikaalu Saaru is one of my top favourite curry recipe. Molake in kannada means sprouts and Hurulikallu means Horsegram. This is a spicy and nutritious rich curry.It’s very famous in few regions of Karnataka , though this bean has not made any appearance in any of the restaurant menu , it’s one of the nutritious and miracle pulse. Lot of delicious dishes can be prepared with this humble grains.

As horse gram is grown in abundance after harvesting paddy , it’s easily available. No fertilizers are used to grow this crop, as it is not in much light ,its not made to the supermarkets with an organic label. So if at all you find Horse Gram with organic label with a pricey tag ,beware to pick a non organic version because no harmful fertilizers and pesticides are used in this crop.

This humble bean has lots of nutritious , so be sure to add it in your diet. It is high in protein, vitamins and minerals . It even helps to promote weight loss and also good for diabetics as it is rich in dietary fiber. Which in turn helps to balance the blood glucose levels. It’s even said  that it is helpful for people with Arthritis.

    Notes

    • Adding methi/fenugreek leaves  is optional,but it gives you a very nice flavour. Brinjal and potato is left to your choice.
    • It prepares almost 1 ltr - 1.5 ltr of curry, i.e, you can add upto 1.3 ltrs of water not more than that.
    • Grind paste 3 ,without adding water initially . Later add water and grind to a very smooth paste.
    • If you find the process of grinding thrice as more time consuming,you can grind everything  all together,but you'll not get it as delicious as grinding 3 paste separately.
    • You can follow the same procedure to do spicy curry with any legumes.
