Pudina Thogayal/Thuvaiyal | Mint Thogayal | Mint Chutney for Rice | Gluten Free and Vegan Recipe

Pudina Thogayal

Hi Supermoms,

'Thuvaiyal/Thogayal' is an integral part of my lunch menu. 

Thuvaiyal is almost like a chutney but is made for mixing with rice and ghee and enjoying as the first course in a meal. Thuvaiyal can be made with different dals and/or vegetables. I make thuvaiyal even with  vegetable peel and seeds. 

As a family, we love thuvaiyal. One of our favourite Thuvaiyal is the Mint Thuvaiyal. It is tangy, spicy, and refreshingly tasty. 

The best part is that it takes less than 10 minutes to make it. So, go ahead, give this recipe a try and share your feedback with me.
