We South Indians make varieties of thogayal at home. More than pickles we all love thogayal as an accompaniment for curd rice. I have posted karuveppilai thokku recipe in jeyashris kitchen.Few weeks back when we friends met for potluck, one of them brought this karuveppilai thogayal.

It tasted yum and we enjoyed with plain rice and cabbage thoran.
