Paruppu Thuvayal

If i had to cook in less than 30 mins, then this thuvayal and rasam finds its place definitely. This is my hubby's favourite too. I got the recipe from Kribha. I have tried few recipe's from her blog and loved it a lot. Thanks Kribha for sharing the recipe.

Paruppu Thuvayal

This paruppu thuvayal is served for nursing mom's. The garlic and tuvar dal helps in milk secreation.


Tuvar Dal / Tuvaram Paruppu - 1/2  cup
Milagu / Pepper - 5
Dry Red Chilli - 3 or  4
Garlic - 2
Asafoetida powder - 1/2 tsp
Grated Coconut - 2 tbsp's
Curry Leaf - 5


In a Pan, dry roast the above ingredients one by one in the above order. once dry roasted, let them cool.

Add 4 tbsp's of water & salt to taste, along with the dry roasted ingredients and Grind them into a coarse paste.

Transfer the grinded thuvayal to the serving bowl.

Mix the thuvayal with hot rice, add 1/4 tsp of ghee and mix. My way is to pour Rasam generously over the thuvayal sadam and eat it with appalam.

Kothamalli Sadham / Corriander Leaves Rice:

I got to share my Kothamalli Rice Recipe with You all. I prepared my Kothamalli Thokku and mixed with Rice. It turned out excellent. Kothamalli Thokku is one, to be eaten with Hot Idli's or Dosa's. It is also eaten with Noi Kanji, when fallen ill. The Kanji with this thokku is a great combination. anyway for packing lunch, you can mix this thokku with Rice, add some roasted peanuts and pack for lunch.
