Mixed Thogayal

I am a big fan of thogayal. Thogayal can be mixed with rice or can be used as a side dish for idli, dosa or chaapathi. So I make it in the morning and use it as a side dish for dinner also. This thogyal has all vegetables and the oil used is also very less. This is a healthy and low-fat side dish.


-1 cup chow-chow
-1 cup cabbage
-1 cup bell pepper
-1 cup zucchini
-1 cup carrot
-1 cup red pumpkin
-1 tomato
-1/4 cup chana dhal
-1/4 cup urad dhal
-7-8 red chillies (based on your spice level)
-1/4 tsp asafoetida
- 1/2 lime size tamarind- soak in hot water (increase tamrind if tomato is not used)
-2 tsp oil
-salt to taste


1.Chop all the vegetables in bite size pieces. Microwave the vegetables with salt until it becomes a little tender.
2. In a frying pan add oil. Add channa dhal, urad dhal,asafoetida and the red chillie. Fry until it becomes brown.
3.In a blender first blend the dhals. Then add the vegetables,salth and blend it together.

Serve it with rice, rotis ,idli or dosa.



This look delicious!! Love the mixed veges in dal!!
