This protein rich chutney pudi is made with horse gram, a traditional superfood used in Kannadiga cuisine. The lentil is so rich in protein that it was fed to race horses to pump them up with the energy needed to run faster.
Known as a miracle pulse, this pudi was recommended to me by my doctor after my knee surgery since it’s known to reduce joint inflammation and pain. Additionally it has anti-bacterial properties and is low on the hyperglycemic index.
As with any chutney pudi, we recommend adding a little ghee or oil and eating it with dosa, ildi, akki roti or even chapatis!
