    My first teacher is my mother just like your first teacher in life. She has taught me so many things in life. I would rather say everything I know now has been taught by my parents. My mother has been instrumental in my cooking so much. If I dare to explore new cuisines and new techniques in my cooking now, I will attribute that to my mother. This week the Swati who blogs at Food-Trails suggested that we blog with the theme of down the memory lane. I am showcasing this humble paruppu thogayal which my mother often cooked for us.

    Amma is getting old and now in a hospital. Cannot imagine her in a bed . When I think about her younger day,  I remember her baking cookies in a biscuit box. She never attends any baking course though. I would wait for a Sunday when she would make some very delicious icecreams, We never had a refrigerator, but she would freeze it in a friends place for us. She taught me crochet and knitting. She is 85 and even now knits for family. Recentky she has started knitting for charity, where she knits scarfs for downtrodden. I wonder if I will find any other woman who has so much knowledge and ready to share it with others. I hope she recovers fast to read her recipe being featured. Get well soon ma!

    Paruppu thogayal

    Paruppu Thogayal -Tambrahm special

    Paruppu thogayal will feature in most of the tamizh household especially in a tambrham house. There will be small variations though. My mother in law used only tuvar dal while amma used both tuvar dal and bengal gram dal. My mother in law used some pepper too in this while amma used only red chillies. Amma would make this delicious thogayal and serve it with some tangy milagu kuzhambu and hot rice. I can never say no to this combination. The process of making this thogayal is so simple.

    Check out the simple video for making this delicious thogayal.

    You are right – Mothers are our first teacher and here’s hoping she recovers soon and is happy that her daughter has made her so proud with one of her creations. Veena, as a tam brahm, give me paruppu thogayal, nalla ennai and steamed rice – I need nothing else! Sheer bliss.

    Prayers for mami’s speedy recovery, Veena … I use equal quanity of kadalai paruppu and thuvaram as we like it.. thgayal and milagu kuzhambu !! aahaa … bliss !

    This is such an easy and simple recipe and though never tried and tasted it, this sounds so flavourful. You have beautifully captured the dish. I wish your mom a speedy recovery ..

    Veena wishing your mom a speedy recovery. Mom’s are the best teachers in this world.Our quest for learning from them never ends. This tambram style thogayal is a keeper recipe.So easy to make when you are short of time to cook.

    The paruppu thogayal looks so satisfying! To me it is comfort food, with rice, nalla ennai, appalam. Ive learnt to live with microwaved appalam nowadays in an effort at weight watching, but the thogayal makes up for not having the fried one. My recipe is almost similar (I guess most tambrahm ones are), though I add more of the Bengal gram dal. I do hope your mother recovers soon, Veena and she gets back to peaceful knitting for charity.

    I love parippu thogayal with rice and rasam. I never miss the veggies on the plate if I just get theli rasam and the thogayal. Love your recipe, Veena

    Made, tastes so flavorful and reminded me of my tasty adventures into my friends lunch box in our Mandaveli school as a kid. Simple, tambrahm classic
