Inji Thogayal – with Step by Step pictures and instructions are given here.
Inji Thogayal is a simple and spicy side dish recipe that is served in almost all South Indian restaurants. This Inji Thogayal goes amazing with plain rice and full meals. Thogayal is one of the most important menus that takes place in all the function meals. This thogayal has different variations. One among them is Inji Thogayal.
I have added grated coconut to this Inji Thogayal to get a little bit of coconut flavour. You can either add or skip them. If you are using Ginger alone, the thogayal will have a strong ginger taste. By adding coconut, you can overcome some of the ginger’s strong flavour. Moreover, I haven’t tempered the thogayal but if you want, you can temper once you finish blending the thogayal. Since ginger has many nutrients, you can serve this to children as well. So try this Thogayal recipe, and let me know how it turns out for you.
