Paruppu Thogayal 2

This is my mom's favorite thogayal. This is the simple recipe for making this thogayal. After 6 years of her death, I made this thogayal yesterday with drumstick molagootal and had it for lunch.

Ingredients:-
  1. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  2. Channa dhall - 1 1/2 tbsp
  3. Red chillies - 3 (acc to taste)
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Grated coconut - 2 1/2 tbsp

Fry mustard seeds, channa dhall, red chillies to golden brown. Add coconut to it and saute' for a moment. Let it cool. Grind it into a fine paste adding required amount of salt to it. Enjoy this as a side dish for molagootal rice or vathakozhambu rice.
