Porikadalai/Pottukadalai Thuvaiyal(Fried/roasted Bengal Gram Thuvaiyal)

A very yummy and simple side dish for rice. It is heavenly in taste when it combines pure ghee and hot steaming rice. In our family we have the habit mixing rice with this along with sothi/vendhaya Charu/puli kulambu. Have a try and let me know your feedback. Infants above 1 year of age can also be given this.

A no cook no oil recipe which can be made in 5 minutes 🙂



  • Porikadalai(Roasted/fried Bengal gram)-1/2 cup
  • Garlic-3
