Piyava Thambali

Piyava thambali is a popular G.S.B dish. “Piyavu” means onion. It is most commonly served with  fried fish. Amma used to prepare this often. This is one of my personal favourite and now my husband’s favourite too… Chilled thambali tastes good too. 

Ingredients to be ground:
Coconut-1 cup,grated
Roasted short red chillies-2
Tamarind-half the marble size
Other ingredients:
Onion-1.chopped finely
Green chilly-1,chopped
Ginger-1 tsp,chopped finely
Coconut oil-1 tsp


  1. Grind all the ingredients mentioned under the masala list to a very smooth paste.
  2. Transfer the ground masala into a bowl,add masala water,salt to taste and adjust the gravy.
  3. Keep the gravy normal thin,add chopped onions,green chilly and ginger,coconut oil and mix it.
  4. Serve it with fish thali.

My notes:

  • No boiling the thambali.
  • Keep the ground thambali in another bowl of water beneath for an hour.
  • After an hour refrigerate for further use.
