Thuvayal means chutney in Tamil this is used in many villages, now try this variation with the Venn Pongal.........
Coconut 1 cup Grated
Chick Peas 2tbsp Roasted (this is available in markets known as Pottu Kadalai )
Dry Red chilly 3 nos
Tamarind marble size
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Split Urad Dal 1/2 tsp
*Put the coconut, red chilly, chick Peas, Tamarind salt to taste and blend with little water, this should not be fine but a bit coarse, remove and keep in a serving bowl.
* Heat that oil in a small pan, add thee mustard when it crackles add the urad Dal and pour over the mixture mix slightly and serve with the Pongal.
This is a ideal chutney and goes well with Idly and Dosa as well, however one can always increase the quantum of Red dry chilly to taste
