When you are tired/bored of making the conventional Kuzhambu/Rasam every day you can make Thuvayal for a change. It requires very less time to cook and you can finish the whole cooking for lunch in 30 mins. You can mix thuvayal with rice and eat with applam. You can also use this as a side dish for Rasam.

Kollu has good medicinal properties. It has high iron content, good for high BP and cholesterol. It is highly recommended for obesity. Next time when you decide to make Thuvayal try Kollu thuvayal if you not tried before.
