Thogayal

This is also one of the side dish for molguttals.  Also a dish in itself, it can be mixed with rice and ghee and any curry as sidedish this too makes a complete meal. There are many variations and they can  be made using veggies or combination of dals. Many think this and chutney are same. But there’s a difference in both. Although both look a little similar, the additions of dal/veggies makes them different.
