Theeyal is a kerala dish and another famous south indian side dish like sambar. Instead of dal, roasted coconut, coriander, red chilli and fenugreek is grounded and added in tamarind water along with vegetables. Theeyal means "Burnt" , it gets its name from brownly roated coconut added in the recipe. Theeyal can be made using different vegetables like onion shallots, brinjal/eggplant,potato, bitter gourd etc.

Browned coconut gives a unique taste and flavor to this dish. This goes well with rice, idly, dosa. This is made in all parts of Kerala and they include this dish in sadya in some parts of kerala. Instead of making sambar all the time we can try this different side dish for rice and enjoy the unique taste of this dish
