Paruppu Thovaiyal

Paruppu Thovaiyal, is a common south Indian dish which makes a wonderful accomplishment for rasam rice, sambar rice etc. Thovaiyal can be prepared using various dals or vegetables. This is made just the way we make chutney but the consistency should be really thick.

Channa Dal (Kadala Paruppu) - 1/2 Cup
Coconut - 1/2 Cup
Dry Red Chili - 3 No.
Garlic - 2 Cloves
Tamarind - 2 inch piece
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp.
Salt to taste

1. Dry roast the channa dal till you get the flavor of dal and the color starts to change to light brown color. Grate the coconut and keep other ingredients ready.
2. Add the dry red chilies to the dal and fry for a minute. Let the roasted dal cool down to room temperature. Add dal, dry red chili, coconut, salt, tamarind, asafoetida, galric to blender.
3. Grind the dal mixture to a coarse paste without adding water. Then, sprinkle water little by little and grind it to a thick coarse paste. 
Paruppu Thovaiyal is ready to serve with rasam rice, sambar rice or any rice varieties.

Be little cautious while adding water when grinding because adding too much of water will make it like a chutney. Thovaiyal should be in a thick consistency.
