Paasi Paruppu Thogayal / Moong Dal Chutney

Thogayal is the chutney made in Tamilnadu meant to have with rice. Instead of Kuzhambu / gravy we make this thick chutney out of various dals or veggies and mix with hot steaming rice with a dallop of ghee and relish with pappad and any vegetable kootu. Especially we prefer to have this during rainy nights. Paasi paruppu thogayal is a healthy chutney made of roasted moong dal that gives fantastic aroma and taste. We make Paruppu thogayal with thurdal, moong dal or chana dal. Out of the three this moong dal thogayal / chutney is the healthiest and tastiest one...
