Vadagam chutney
Easy chutney/ thuvaiyal that can be made under 5 minutes, goes well with pongal, kanji etc. I first time got this thalippu vadagam from my MIL. I have tasted thalippu vadagam may be once or twice in tempering during my childhood and never liked it. Same with Vj, he too never like thalippu vadagam tempering. So both my mom and MIL never made this or use this. This is passed to my MIL from her sis, so my MIL asked me to take few. Though I did not want to, I took just 4 for making this thogaiyal  as I have heard this will be really nice and easy to make too. And I realised that it’s true when I tried on my own. They say this is perfect for pongal. But Yet I have to try that. I tried it with vendhaya kanji as you must have seen in my last week’s post. I would say it was similar to vathal kuzhambu taste and flavour, as the ingredients are same.

    1. No need to fry the vadams, just grind as such. This is thalippu vengaya vadagam different from the fryums kind of vadam. Hope you know this.
