KOTHAMALLI THOKKU(CORIANDER LEAVES THOKKU)

          Though i have attempted making thokku with Tomato,i never tried  kothamalli thokku on my own. Few weeks back, when i was  talking to a friend she was telling that she made kothamalli thokku that afternoon. After hearing the recipe, i wanted to give it a try ,since it was so simple to make.
            Thanks J, for the recipe.

    • Saute till the oil leaves on the sides and it gives a nice aroma.
    • This will take approximately around 10-12 minutes.
    • Allow it to cool and transfer it to a container.
    • This can be stored in the fridge for 10-15 days.
    • This thokku tastes well with curd rice and Paratha.
