This thuvayal is easy to make, very healthy and tastes great with rice. It can be prepared with coriander leaves or curry leaves or pudina/mint leaves or a mix of all the 3 greens. It tastes great with rice. It is very nutritious and easy to make.
Heat a tsp of oil in a kadai, add urad dal, channa dal, tur dal, red chillies, whole black pepper and asafoetida. Saute until dal turns light golden brown.
Then the mixed greens and sauté until it wilts. Turn off the heat. Add grated coconut and saute in the heat of the pan. Leave it to cool.
Once it cools, grind it along with tamarind, salt and a little water.
This thuvaiyal tastes delicious when mixed with hot steamed rice and a tsp of ghee/sesame seed oil.
It can be used as an accompaniment for chappati and dosa also.
Note – I personally use 3-4 dried gooseberry pieces instead of tamarind as gooseberries are rich source of vitamin C.
You can use either one of the greens (mint leaves or curry leaves or coriander leaves) or all three together and make this thogayal.
