ABOUT Vadagam Thogayal RECIPE

This is one of my family's favourite and traditional chutney which is served with ponguna satham ( rice cooking in open pot with extra water ) . Vadagam ( Tamilnadu seasoning ) is very healthy as it contains small onions, jeera,garlic, sombu, turmeric,mustard and methi but has a light bitter taste. Adding extra coconut and tamarind will reduce the bitterness but the recipe which I have mentioned is the usual way of my mom's preparation.
