Sigappu Milagai Thogayal Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

Yesterday I shared with you all that large size fresh red chillies are in season and also shared the simplest recipe to pickle them. Another favourite way to use them is to make 'thogayal or thuvaiyal'. Thogayal in Tamil Cuisine, is a thick chutney  that is served as the first course along with rice and ghee. 

I love grinding thogayal as many vegetables can be added to the diet and can also be cooked quite fast. I had made this thogayal some time ago and many of you on instagram and facebook had requested for the recipe. Sorry for the delay in updation of the same. You can try this thogayal recipe with big green chillies ( mirchi bajji chillies) also.

Serve it with rice or serve it as a side dish for tiffin, they taste so fresh and delicious.

Sigappu Milagai Thogayal Recipe:

Preparation time : 5 minutes
Cooking time : 20 minutes
Serves : 4
1 cup = 250 ml cup 
Storage : keeps good for upto 3 days when refrigerated and stored in a clean, dry and odour free container .

Ingredients : 

4 large fresh red chillies
1/4 cup coconut
2 gooseberries ( roughly chopped) OR marble size tamarind 
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil ( to grease the chillies)
1/2 teaspoon jaggery powder ( optional)

To fry and grind :

2 teaspoons sesame oil ( or oil of your choice)

1. Wash the fresh red chillies and pat them dry.

2. Grease the chillies with oil.

Chef tip: You will have to keep turning the chillies so that all sides gets uniformly fire roasted. You can use the chapathi rack if you have one or can individually fire roast them.

5. Transfer the rest of the chillies into the jar of a mixer.
