  • Toor Dal - 1/2 cup
  • Black Pepper Corns - 1/2 tsp
  • Red Chillies - 4
  • Garlic - 2 cloves
  • Grated Coconut - 2 tbsp
  • Hing - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - as required
  • Seasame Oil - 1 tsp


  • Take all your ingredients and keep it ready. Heat a tsp of oil in a pan and add red chillies and fry it in medium flame for a minute. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, add toor dal, black pepper and garlic. Fry them in medium flame until toor dal gets golden brown. Don't burn the dal to turn black as it spoils the whole taste of the thuvaiyal. Once the toor dal turns golden brown,¬†add grated coconut.
  • Give a quick stir and switch off the flame.¬†Transfer the roasted ingredients to a mixer along with salt and hing. Grind it to a coarse paste by adding little water. Thuvaiyal has to be thick so add water accordingly
