For past few years, I have started keeping kolu at my home here in Singapore. I have grown seeing my mom keeping kolu every year and inspired by her to do here as I love this a lot.
As a kid, I never understood the work behind all these preparations for keeping kolu. Just enjoyed it, helping mom to arrange. Now my mom, inspite of her health conditions, never fail to keep kolu. She have the same interest as she used to be when I was a kid. Amma, you are a true inspiration to me.
These days, when I have skype call with her, she shows all her hand work, pre preparations for kolu and I was totally awestruck by her enthusiasm and creativity, that too with the material constraints she have!
My mom is equally excited and coping up with my niece kid Raksha. She instructs my mom from Bangalore and my mom have specially arranged a mini kolu for her sake in addition to the regular kolu she has kept.
I know there are so many people keeping kolu and are with extraordinary talents and they put amazing display of kolu. But for me, my world, my mom’s is the best.
I always admire that, I always get inspired from her, I always get energized by her. Now a days, my dad only helps her with the arrangements and they keep saying one another as senior engineer for this sake.

- 1 cup Peanut dry
- ⅛ cup Coconut
- Salt – as needed
- 2 tsp Oil – 2 tsp
- ½ tsp Mustard
- 1 tsp Urad dal
- 2 Red chilli
- 10 Curry leaves
- ⅛ tsp Asafoetida
- Soak the peanuts for 1 to 3 hours. Drain and pressure cook for 5 whistles with ¾ cup water, salt.
- Drain and keep aside. Heat a pan with oil and temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table.
- Add the drained peanuts and give a stir for a minute.
- Add the coconut (I ground coarsely) and mix well for a minute.
- My mom never drain the water and boil it until it evaporates.
- If you use fresh peanuts, no need to soak, just pressure cook with salt.
- You can add finely chopped ginger after you temper for extra flavor.
- Another method is grind coconut, green chilli and ginger coarsely and add lastly instead of using red chillies while tempering.
- I made less in quantity for this post than I have mentioned in the ingredients.
