Paruppu Thogayal

This is a simple receipe and also a side dish for Idly, Dosai etc. We can also make Thogayal rice (thogayal saadam) with this. The main ingredients are as follow:

  1. Toor dal - 3 tbsp
  2. Channa dal - 2 tbsp
  3. Urid dal - 1 tbsp
  4. Fresh coconut - 1 tbsp
  5. Black pepper - 2 tsp
  6. salt to taste
  7. Red chillies - 1 (optional, if we increase the quantity of pepper)
  8. Asafoetida
  9. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  10. Oil - 1 tsp
Take a pan, pre heat the oil and fry all the above said ingredients (except salt) one by one, to golden brown. Do not burn the ingredients. Let it cool and grind the ingredients adding a little bit of water and salt to it. The consistency should be thick. We can mix this with rice and don't forget to add a teaspoon of sesame oil while mixing this thogayal with rice.

Any vegetable kootu can be a good side dish for this rice. Kootu should not be watery. It should be in a semi-solid consistency. Also any curd pachadi can be a good dish dish.

Excellent recipe...this is exactly what my mom makes...I did not fry the coconut though...I just tossed it around in the heat left over in my pan after roasting everything else. Worked out perfect with some rasam and urulaikazhangu fry :)
