Thengai Thogayal

Whenever I ask my hubby the thogayal he wants, his first choice is always thengai thogayal, the spicy and tangy thogayal goes well literally with everything just hot rice or tangy rasam or curd rice. The perfect mixture of dals and coconut makes the taste of this thogayal liked by every one. One of my hubby's friend prefer to eat it just like that in a cup with a spoon. Though he drinks water every other spoon he still relishes it. 

Grated coconut - 1 cup
Thuvar dal - 3/4th cup
Tamarind paste - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Curry leaves a few
Red Chillies - 8 nos
Gingely Oil - 2 tbsp

In a pan add gingely oil and when hot add thuvar dal and when it starts turning brown add curry leaves red chillies. When the red chillies get fried add the grated coconut and mix well. Switch off the flame and add the salt and the tamarind paste. Let it cool and grind it to a coarse paste adding very little water. 
Serve it with hot rice and gingely oil. It can also be served with dosa or chappati.
