Ellu Thuvaial

                             Ellu Thuvaial is the chutney that we prepare as a combination with Uzhundham Paruppu Sadham to be mixed with it and eaten.Ellu means sesame seeds from which the Gingelly oil or Nallennai is extracted.We can use Black or white Ellu.Our choice is always the Black Ellu as we feel it to be tasty with a unique aroma. The Ellu should be free from impurities.
