manathakkali keerai (Black Nightshade) Thuvaiyal (thogayal)

When I visited my mum last time she made chutney with manathakkali keerai (Black Nightshade) for idli. She has tons of plant in her backyard. So she does lot of dishes with it. I normally I do Manathakkali kootu with it. This time I wanted to try out something to mix with rice. When I asked my mum she said we can do Thogayal. It tasted good. Here you go with the recipe


Ingredients:

Urad dhal - 1 teaspoon
Bengal Gram Dhal - 1 teaspoon
Manathakkali Keerai - 2 Cups

  19. For the more health-conscious people, a great natural gout treatment for gout
    seems to be gout cherry juice, as the juice can help the liver
    and kidneys function more proficiently. Most
    of the purines are eliminated from the blood
    and the body via a person's urine, however when too much accumulates, the kidneys aren't
    capable of handling the excess.
