Paruppu Thuvayal ( Lentil Chutney)

Thuvayal is something like a chutney, which you mix with hot rice and eat, so it is a main dish,
Chutney is only an accompaniment to a side dish.
You Need
Toor Dal - 1/2 Cup
Red Chillies - 3
Grated Coconut - 1/2 Teaspoon (Optional)
--->In a pan, Roast 1/2 cup of Toor Dal, with 3 red chillies and 1/2 teaspoon of Grated Coconut, until the dal becomes red,
--->Grind to a smooth paste, by adding 1/2 cup water. (Add the water little by little), the mixture should be thick.
This is a perfect accompaniment for Milagu Kuzhambu.
