Paruppu Thuvayal Recipe | Paruppu Thogayal Recipe

Paruppu Thuvayal(Paruppu Thogayal) is a simple and yummy dish which can be served as a side dish for Idly/dosa or we can mix the thuvayal with a plain rice and ghee and have it with pappad . Whenever we feel bored of doing sambar/ kuzhambu, this Paruppu thuvayal is a best substitute.

For Paruppu thuvayal, add a few pieces of fresh curry leaves if you have them while grinding, it will taste so much better. Also grated coconut - 1/2 cup in this recipe seems excessive. Instead use just 2-3 tbsp of grated coconut. After grinding for thuvayal, make vagaar (mustard seeds sputtered) and some hing and one red chilli optionally and add to this thuvayal. Enjoy !!

HI, Thanks. Let me try your version, and let you know the same. Thanks for your comments.

Hello! Subbu aunty again, thank you for your willingness to try out with curry leaves. When I travel with family, I make this dry ground, with no coconut. Add a few tablespoons of water just before eating, and you can actually eat this with any other rice (like lemon rice or puliyotharai), or even chapati or pita bread and ofcourse get your daily intake of protein from the toor dhaal. Thanks again, Geetha

Dear subbu aunty, Happy new year to you. Would you be knowing a quick way to prepare uppuma (upma) koyakkattai? Appreciate if you can share that. If you know how to make this with Bulgar wheat (lapsi or broken wheat), instead of idli rava, that will be great ....Geetha

It tastes very bland....any suggestions to make it taste more appetising...

We tried this recipe, and it tastes very authentic! thanks for sharing!

Very simply one
