kothamalli thogayal


Thogayals/Thuvaiyals are favourites to all of us,especially my husband likes it very much. My mother-in-law is very good in making these. I can say these thogayals are among the best of her recipes.The ratio of tamarind, red chillies,salt is very important here. Even if one goes high,we can’t get the exact flavor & taste. In our daily lunch, we definitely have any one of these thogayals. We mix this with rice and eat. You can have this as a accompaniment for curd rice, all Tiffin items (idli, dosa, upma, pongal etc.) too. Even my two year old baby likes it :). Also i pack this thogayal rice for my husband’s lunch which is his favourite lunch box recipe Smile

We make thogayals with curry leaves, coriander leaves, mint, gongura, garlic, ridge gourd, brinjal ,gooseberry etc.

Here I have mentioned the recipe for coriander leaves thogayal. Soon I will post the remaining.
