Thoothuvalai Keerai Chutney

Thoothuvalai Keerai [Solanum Trilobatum] is an excellent herb with numerous and amazing health benefits. It is used in treating common cold, cough and to get rid of phlegm in our chest. Thoothuvalai is basically a thorny creeper with purple flowers and red fruits and grows really very fast. Thoothuvalai creeper has lots of thorns in the leaves, so when your plucking it, you should be very careful. My best advice is to use scissors when cleaning the leaves. Many recipes like thoothuvalai kashayam, thoothuvalai rasam etc are made in many households. Thoothuvalai is available in vegetable markets or from street vendors, but I pluck it from my mom’s garden whenever I get a chance. For now, I am sharing Thoothuvalai Keerai Chutney which is an excellent side dish for idlis and dosas. I know Thoothuvalai is not available in most of the places, but if you come across or get a chance, then do try to make some chutney and reap the benefits of the same. Meanwhile, do check out other interesting and tempting chutney varieties here.
