Thuvayal or thogayal or just chutney is an essential part of tamil cuisine. Thuvayal can be made with many kind of vegetables like cabbage, ridgegourd, coconut,lentils/dal and also a combination of different vegetables. Today morning, I was cutting a whole pumpkin for making olan. I had seperated the fibrous portion along with the seeds at the center and planning to discard it as we usually do. But my grandmom who is visiting us suggested that we could make chutney with it. This really impressed me and I immediately thought of doing a blog post. My grandmom made it and I immediately took pictures. It was quite flavourful and delicious and was over in no time. You actually can store it in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days. Thuvayal is an excellent side dish with rasam rice. But I love to eat it mixing with hot steamed rice. It also goes with dosas and chapatis. I also like to have it by spreading it on a buttered toast,much healthier option.
