Amma's Kothamalli Thovaiyal (Thogayal) / Thick Coriander Chutney / Cilantro Chutney Using Coconut


Amma is a expert in making this. The taste of this chutney just stays in my tongue forever. I love this that much. Its aroma and its taste is divine. She also makes this using mint leaves or a mixture of both. I have a recipe of my mom's mint chutney in this blog too.Anyhow it taste yummy with hot dosa's or idli's. Also check out my version of mint chutney.


Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time: 10 minss
Serves - 3 to 4

Ingredients:

Oil - 1 tblspn
Urad Dal / Ulundu Paruppu - 1 tblspn
Roasted Channa dal / Pori Kadalai - 1 tblspn
Coconut - 3 tblspn grated
Garlic - 2 cloves
Tamarind - 1 tblspn
Dry Red Chilli - 3
Coriander leaves / Cilantro a bunch (about 2 cups packed)
Salt to taste
Jaggery -1 tblspn

Method:

Wash coriander leaves and let it drain.

Heat oil in a kadai. Add in all the ingredients starting fromurad dal to chillies in the kadai. Saute till they turn nice and golden.

Now turn the heat off and add in coriander leaves and mix them. The heat from the kadai will wilt the coriander leaves.

Allow this mixture to cool down.Take them in a blender and add in salt and jaggery. Now grind them into a paste. You can leave them little coarse too. You can add very little water when grinding.

Transfer them to a bowl. Serve with dosa or idli.
