A classic South Indian accompaniment, the Coconut Thuvayal is a slightly spicier coconut chutney made by blending coconut with roasted dals and spices. A dash of asafoetida boosts the aroma of this chutney while tamarind gives it an appetizing tang.
The Coconut Thuvayal can be enjoyed with any meal. You can have it with idlis or dosas , or with curd rice, Sambhar rice or dal rice. You can also mix a little thuvayal and til oil with hot rice and enjoy with papad and raita.
It stays fresh in the fridge for 3 or 4 days, so you can make a batch and store it for timely use.
