Coconut Thogayal Recipe
Amma makes Thengai Thogayal(Coconut Thogayal) one with coriander leaves and this one with tamarind...I like both versions....thogayal recipes are always handy for a lazy day lunch and it pairs well with just plain rice or even any variety rice. You have leftover thogayal add little water,temper and you get a chutney for dosa idli...yes this is what I do :)
