This is a very simple & healthy Thuvaiyal recipe. My Mil used to make this Paruppu Thogayal with Kara Kuzhambu or Vatral Kuzhambu on holidays.  Mmmm…it’s a delectable combination...;))
Also it tastes best when paired with idly & dosa. 
This thogayal is almost like chutney, that is in thick consistency. It is made of lentils, spices and coconut.
Try this tasty authentic recipe & enjoy…J
·        Toor dal / Thuvaram Paruppu              - ½ cup
·        Red chilly                                           - 2
·        Garlic                                                 - 2
·        Pepper corns                                     - ½ tsp
·        Hing                                                  - a pinch
·        Grated coconut                                  - 2 tbsp
·        Salt to taste
1.    Heat ½ tsp oil in a fry pan.
2.    Dry roast Toor dal in low flame, until it lets out nice aroma. ( take care not to burn it, else the thogayal tastes bitter.)
3.    Take it aside in plate and allow to cool.
4.    Now roast red chilly, garlic, peppercorns, hing & grated coconut pieces for few minutes.
5.    Allow to cool.
6.    Add salt & grind the roasted items in a blender.
7.    Sprinkle very less water, so as to retain the thick consistency of the thogayal.
8.    Paruppu Thogayal – authentic special dish is ready.
9.    It tastes awesome with hot steamed rice or with vathakuzhambu rice .
