Pudina Thogayal is very rare at home as the lil one is fond of only anything coriander based either chutney / thogayal. But I love any variety of thogayal, infact I can survive with just thogayal and rice even if its daily :) Thogayal recipes are always handy when we run out of time and ideas for lunch. I paired the thogayal with thattapayir kuzhambu , rice and we had a hearty meal :)
