Pirandai KaruveppilaiThuvaiyal recipe, Pirandai chutney

Pirandai KaruveppilaiThuvaiyal recipe, in tamil we call it as pirandai, it is called as Adamant creeper in English and Hadjod in Hindi. Pirandai thuvaiyal recipe with step by step pictures, pairs well with dosai and hot rice. Generally pirandai thogaiyal is made during srardams in Tamil brahmin houses(prayers offered to ancestors) Somehow from my childhood i never tasted this thogayal. The name Pirandai itself makes me to feel uncomfortable, don't know whyπŸ˜ƒ. Pirandai has lots of health benefits. It aids in digestion and also a good source of Calcium. It is very good for joint pains. I got the cutting of Pirandai plant from my friend here and it started beautifully growing up. I asked my mom for the recipe and she shared her way of making the Pirandai thogayal. If you want you can add more pirandai, but i have less in my home garden, so i used little only. It tasted nice with hot rice and also tasted yum with curd rice. The ones we get in shops are bit thick. Look out for a tender ones and make the thuvaiyal.
