It is freezing cold outside and the Sun has taken a sabbatical for more than a week. The grayish sky seems to be draining out all our energy and interest, all we could do is hours in front of tv cuddled in a throw. The only comfort about this dull weather is food. Something hot and spicy and this one is one of family's favourite.
This recipe is from my mother in law. Parupu thogayal with milagu kuzhambu is everyone's favourite combination. Quite simple to prepare. All you have to do is roast few ingredients and grind it. Another good thing about is that it can be paired with so many dishes. Parupu thogayal and Jeera Rasam ( any rasam for that matter), Parupu thogayal and vatha kuzhambu, milagu kuzhambu or just a simple sutta appalam is enough.
Simple and plain. Roasted dal ground with chilly.
Prep Time: 5 Mins | Cook Time: 1 Min | Total Time: 6 Mins | Serves: 2
