    hi,
    iam desperate to shred weight.....1 thing that i can advise after personal experience is horse gram dal...in tamil we call it "kollu" its very dry when compared to other dals and takes a lot of time to cook....pls try it its very hard to start with but when you start reducing on your kgs you will love it:cool2:...horse gram as the name states is the food best for horses as it increses stamina and reduces body weight so that horses can run faster with lesser body mass..pls try

    Dear Friends

    Kollu / Horsegram not only helps to reduce weight but also helps to prevent bad Cholestrol in our body

    Just soak horsegram in water for some hours ( or soak while going to bed) and pressure cook it with little salt while you prepare your rice

    You can use that like any other dhal for preparing rasam or

    prepare that as sundal ( regular method )

    or jus mix that with your veg salad and eat

    or jus roast it without oil in fry pan and prepare like all other chutney / thogayal

    You can also prepare horsegram powder ( kollu podi) and mix it with rice and eat

    Iam not telling this simply for you people, iam preparing it daily and my DH';S cholestrol level have come down

    ( dont ask me whether i have reduced my weight, for weight reduction along with diet recipes we have to exercise for minimum 30 mts daily)

    Hello Kavi,
    Thanks for the information. Long back i tried this but people started telling it creates body heat so i stopped . May be i can use weekly once or tiwce.
    Is it really true Latamurali, any idea
