1 from 2 votes
Served As Lunch
This Thengai Thogayal is the traditional chutney that substitutes kuzhambu as the companion to rice. When we are bored of making kuzhambu for lunch daily, this Thengai Thogayal gives a welcoming break. It tastes hot, spicy and tangy to mix with hot rice with a tea spoon of coconut oil or ghee and any vegetable kootu and Pappad. This thogayal also tastes very good as a side dish to curd rice.
