Watermelon Rind & Curry leaves Thogayal

Here is another recipe using watermelon rind. I could not resist myself when the vegetable vendor gave a bunch of curry leaves. The leaves were soo fresh that I decided to use it along with the watermelon rind for the thogayal. Drizzle some sesame oil over hot rice, add the thogayal and enjoy thogayal rice with pappadam.

Ingredients

Watermelon rind — 1 cup

Curry leave — 1 cup

Coconut — 3/4 cup

Urad dal — 3 tbsp

whole pepper — 1/2 tsp

Dry red chilii — 2-3

Tamarind — small marble size

Jaggery — 1 /2 tsp

Sesame oil — 2-3 tbsp

Salt —- 3/4 tsp.

Method

Wash curry leaves well. Remove the dark green skin of the watermelon rind and cut it into small pieces. Heat oil in a pan. Add urad dal, whole pepper, red chili and fry till the color of the dal changes. Now add the watermelon rind and give it a stir. Close the kadai and cook in low heat for two minutes. Further add the curry leaves, stir for a minute and put off the heat. Once the fried ingredients are cooled, add coconut, tamarind, jaggery, salt and grind everything together adding little water. Your Watermelon Rind & Curry leaves thogayal is ready.
