July 27, 2020 Chutney Recipes  No comments

Karuveppilai Thuvaiyal is a healthy & easy recipe to go with rice or even idli/dosa. I prefer consuming curry leaves in the form of this thogayal or thokku rather than adding it in dishes just for fragrance and discarding it while eating 🙂 And I must mention, curry leaves are expensive here, so no wasting! Karuveppilai or curry leaves is known for its health benefits. Its rich in iron. Thuvaiyal is meant to be thick rather than a normal chutney. Try this Karuveppilai Thokku recipe if interested.
