Mint Thogayal

This is another kind of thogayal which is good for stomach ache and chest. Most of us don't like the smell of mint. So we can add coriander leaves with mint leaves. The main ingredients are as follows:
  1. Mint Leaves - 1 bunch
  2. Coriander leaves - 1/2 bunch
  3. Tomato - 1 (cut it into cubes)
  4. Onion - 1/2 (cut it)
  5. Channa dal - 2 tsp
  6. Urid dal - 1 1/2 tsp
  7. Red chillies - 2 or 3
  8. Coconut - 2 tsp
  9. Asafoetida - a pinch
  10. Oil - 1 tsp
  11. Mustard seeds
First wash the mint leaves and coriander leaves. Cut those leaves and keep it aside. Now take a small pan, preheat the oil and fry mustard seeds, channa dal, urid dal, red chillies, coconut, asafoetida, into golden brown. Take out the ingredients from the pan and let it cool. Now in the same pan fry the mint leaves and coriander leaves till the leaves shrink and the water evaporates and let the leaves cool. Now grind everything nicely adding a little bit of water(if necessary) and salt to it. If we want we can add a little bit of tamarind to the ingredients before grinding.
