This was a simple sidedish goes well with rice / idli / dosa. It was same as the coconut chutney , the difference is usage of tamarind and it will be thick in consistency.
Thuvayal was the word commonly used to pronounce thick grounded sidedish , which was grounded in the mortor pestle in olden days.
This was simple thuvayal , which I grinded in blender.
Grated coconut – 1 cup
Roasted Channa dhal – ½ cup
Curry leaf – a sprig
Green chilli – 2
Ginger – ½ inch piece
Tamarind - a small marble size
In a blender grind coconut , chilli , ginger , curry leaves , salt and tamarind along with little water.
If you want , can add the tempering to the thuvayal.
