A Thogayal is a Chutney like preparation and can be made with or without coconut. I prefer to add some while making, as it gives texture to the Thogayal. A variety of Thogayal can be made by using Mint leaves, Curry leaves, Coconut or even Pulses. Posting a Coriander Leaves Thogayal today.
- A small bunch of coriander leaves
- 5 dry red chillies
- 2 tbsps Urad Dal/Black gram Dal
- 1 tbsp tamarind paste
- 2 tbsps grated Coconut
- 1/2 tsp jaggery
- 2 tsps oil
Wash the coriander leaves and drain them well. Heat oil in a pan. Drop in the Urad dal and roast it to a golden brown. Drop in the red chillies and toss them for a couple of seconds. Remove and keep aside. Allow to cool. Grind the coconut, tamarind, jaggery, salt roasted red chillies and urad dal to a smooth paste. Drop in the coriander leaves and grind to a slightly coarse consistency. Serve with hot rice.
