Unlike other regular chutney, which usually goes for breakfast dishes; this chutney has the goodness of toor dal ready source of proteins for a balanced diet and it is so flavorful and delicious perfect combo with hot rice and ghee, rasam rice and even it goes well with chapatti. This thogayal is one of the best bachelor’s recipe. I have survived many days with this in my hostel days.
