shallow fried potatoes) and rice, toi .
many times radish or ridge gourd but toi is dal.
To make Toi you will need:

For the tempering:
- 1 tsp oil
- 1-2 curry leaves

- 3 tblsp coriander, chopped
Optional items :

chillies. Add the hing.
knowing my family who will complain about the anemic dal I added them.
is coconut coarsely ground added to the boiling dal, but since my daughters do
not appreciate it I did not add coconut. You may add 2-3 tblsp coarsely ground.
I have also eaten Toi with ginger added to it.
