Coconut Cilantro Chutney (Thengai Kothamalli Chutney)

I love a lot of Cilantro  in my dishes...

Many of us including me usually use this as a garnish...But my mum use this awesome herb to make chutneys and many more..

Hi aarthi, the chutney looks yummy!! I do the same with a slight variation! I roast muzhu ulundhu, puli, green chillies, a small piece of ginger and garlic and coriander in half a spoon of oil before grinding it with coconut!! It turns out awesome and tastes great wit kara kuzhipaniaram!! :-)
