Prologue: Go here.

08/26/2012: Horsegram (Ulavalu) Rice - Another bottle that I found hideen in my kitchen cabinets that contained these grains, Horsegram. Brown flat round seeds; that is how they look like. Unawares as to what to do with them, I took help of ever friendly Google which never fails to help. :) Here is the successful experiment of one of the recipes (simplified by me ofcourse!) I found. Hope you will enjoy it too!
