Vadagam/Vadava Thovayal

This thovayal goes very well with all rice dishes....People who doesnt know vadagam,chk here...It is used for seasoning the dishes....It is actually sun dried onions mixed with cumin and mustard seeds...

Vadagam-1 lime size ball
Coconut,grated-one cup
Ginger-half inch
Tamarind extract-half tsp
Red chilli(round)-3 to 4
Salt to taste
Sesame Oil-2 tsp

1.Heat Oil ,sprinkle the vadagam
2.As soon as u added,switch off the flame
(it will easily burn and u cant find it since it is already black)
3.Add rest of ingredients ,and switch on the flame and fry them
4.Grind it to fine paste

If ur thovayal turns into black,it wont taste good..I like this thovayal with coconut rice,thengai sadam (or any variety rice)
