PUMPKIN THOGAYAL RECIPE | THOGAIYAL RECIPES


Pumpkin thogayal| Parangikkai thogaiyal is a simple recipe which we generally mix with hot rice smeared with ghee. I love all types of Thogayal we make at home,this pumpkin Thogayal i learnt from my athai and my cousins will have this thogayal as a spread on the bread too. Even you can have this with Chapathi, idli or dosa too.
