Mint - thogayal

Mint thogayal /Pudina thogayal recipe is one of the yummiest thogayal varieties we make for rice.I usually pack this for my husband’s lunch box.My mil makes this thogayal adding roasted urad dal just like coriander leaves thogayal. But addition of urad dal is completely optional.Add only if u want to increase the quantity of thogayal.This thogayal tastes great when mixed with plain rice adding sesame oil.

METHOD


  • Wash mint leaves. Heat a  kadai with a tbsp of oil and fry the red chillies & urad dal.Remove & in the same oil fry the mint leaves for a minute so that it will be shrinked and get reduced in quantity. This gives a special flavour to the thogayal . Soak tamarind in little water.

  • Now grind the red chillies,urad dal,soaked tamarind with salt to a coarse mixture.Then add the mint leaves and grind to a smooth paste adding the required water. Remove and serve with plain rice topped with gingely oil . If u want to grind in large quantities and store , u have to follow the next step. Else stop with this step & enjoy.

  • Heat a kadai with little gingely oil ( 1 tbsp )and put the thogayal into it. The water content in it will be absorbed and becomes thick , heat it for a while. It can be refrigerated and kept for 10 days. But this step is purely optional. U can enjoy this thogayal without sauting in oil. But shelf life will be reduced..
For variations u can skip urad dal and add a tbsp of  grated coconut  while grinding.


YUMMY MINT THOGAYAL is ready to be served with hot rice & tiffin. Enjoy adding sesame oil..
