PUDINA THOGAYAL RECIPE | MINT THOGAYAL

Pudina thogiyal or mint thogaiyal is very common dish at home and one among the recipe which everybody will eat . So whenever i make simple rasam , rice and a curry i make any thogayal either with coconut or  coriander leaves. Enjoy this simple thogayal with Curd Rice or you can mix this with plain hot rice or even have with any Paratha .
