Paruppu Thogayal Recipe | Thuvaiyal Recipes

Paruppu Thogayal with rasam is my fav lunch combu....Last weekend, when I was discussing with hubby about the next days menu he suggested me this thogayal...and added you can make a new post too...haha he reads even my silence :) And only then I realised I havent posted any thogayal so far. So made it for yesterdays lunch and am here ready with the post :)

This is a easy side dish when you dont want to spend too much time at the kitchen. Serve it with hot steamed rice and its a tasty and a comforting combo.

My Notes
  • I made it little on the chutney side as this consistency is easy for mixing with rice. You can adjust water according to the consistency you want.
  • Take care not to burn the dhal else the dip will have a bitter taste.
  • Tastes best with steamed rice or even with rasam rice.
  • I like garlic flavour the best in this thogayal but some will not like garlic smell so ignore it as per your liking.
