Paruppu Thogayal / Paruppu Thuvaiyal
This is a very simple & healthy Thuvaiyal recipe. My Mil used to make this Paruppu Thogayal with Kara Kuzhambu or Vatral Kuzhambu on holidays. Mmmm…it’s a delectable combination...;)) Also it tastes best when paired with idly & dosa. This thogayal is almost like chutney, that is in thick consistency. It is made of lentils, spices and coconut. Try this tasty authentic recipe & enjoy…
Toor dal / Thuvaram Paruppu - ½ cup
Red chilly - 2
Garlic - 2
Pepper corns - ½ tsp
Hing - a pinch
Grated coconut - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Heat ½ tsp oil in a fry pan.
Dry roast Toor dal in low flame, until it lets out nice aroma. ( take care not to burn it, else the thogayal tastes bitter.)
Take it aside in plate and allow to cool.
Now roast red chilly, garlic, peppercorns, hing & grated coconut pieces for few minutes.
Allow to cool.
Add salt & grind the roasted items in a blender.
Sprinkle very less water, so as to retain the thick consistency of the thogayal.
Paruppu Thogayal – authentic special dish is ready.
It tastes awesome with hot steamed rice or with vathakuzhambu rice .
