Kruvepillai thogayal / curry leaf thogayal is an indispensable part of the Tmil cooking , esp Tambram cooking we just cannot do without the humble but most healthiest condiment ever . It is not very uncommon among households to switch to a meal of curry leaf thogayal, rasam and some papad after a previous day or week of binge eating , esp festival foods which are no simple dishes but heavily laden with calories , taste and one digs in with gay abandon as festivals are our most looked forward to events , almost every month after aadi ..one by one festivals roll in and one cannot help but take the gastronomic way .
The nutritional, medicinal benefits of curry leaf is known to one and all and so i will not elaborate on that , it acts as a stomach calmer, aids digestion, dispels gas and improves your iron levels too .
Karuvepillai thogayal tastes divine with curd rice . Karuvepillai rice can also be made by using this ground thogayal.
