coconut thogayal

easy recipe thogayal thohayal dosai chutney
Thogayal (or, thohayal) is a versatile chutney-like dish: can be served with hot rice, or with dosai and rotis. It is usually pretty thick - holds shape when rolled into a ball:)

It happens to be a popular dish at home as D asks for it (are you making some toga-yell today?) and despite its fieriness, my wee one seems to relish it with dosai.

1 cup grated coconut (fresh or dry)
2 Tbsp toor dal
1 Tbsp urad dal
2-3 dry red chilies
1 Tbsp tamarind concentrate
1 Tbsp canola oil
salt to taste

  1. dry roast the dals on medium heat till they release a nutty aroma and urad dal turns light golden brown
  2. combine the toasted dals and rest of the ingredients and blend to a coarse thick paste; adjust salt to taste; add water only if needed;
  3. serve with dosai, adai, rotis or even hot basmati rice

    God bless you - nothing like the good old home made dosai. There is something so heartwarming and 'home-like' about tiffins. The word 'tiffin' takes me back forty years and more to my childhood. Have never tried out 4:1 rice to dal but it sounds like a good idea. 'Toga-yell' sounds good! My elder daughter always says "Tho hell with you!"
