Grandma's Mendhiya Thogayal(Fenugreek Chutney)



This is one of my favorite thogayals. It tastes awesome when mixed with hot rice and ghee. Bitterness from fenugreek is offset by jaggery and tamarind in this recipe.

Ingredients:
To roast:
Fenugreek seeds(Methi seeds)-1 tsp
Urud dal-2 tsp
Channa dal-2 tsp
Mustard seeds-1/4 tsp
Hing-1/4 tsp
Red chillis-5

Other ingredients:
Jaggery-1tbsp
Tamarind-3 inch piece
Salt

Method:
Roast the above ingredients in 2 drops of oil till golden brown. Cool.
Grind with rest of the ingredients adding little water to a course paste.
From the picture you can get an idea of how thick the paste should be.
Serve with hot rice and ghee.

Note: Rice should not be mushy. It be cooked in such a way that the grains are separate.
Ghee is a must. Thogalays taste great only when ghee is added.

  1. Thogayal with rice and ghee is always a winning combination. I've not tried one with vendhayam before...

    So the ingredients listed in your recipe give you the amount in the pic, right? I'll have to adjust according to the amount of chutney I need. This recipe is worth trying.
