Paruppu thuvaiyal (thogayal) is basically a paste made with lentils and coconut. This is a very simple and tasty recipe and is mostly used as a side to pepper kuzhambu. I normally like to mix the kuzhambu with rice and have the thuvaiyal as the side dish whereas K likes it the other way. So however you choose to have it this is sure to please the palate. Off to the recipe.
