KOTHAMALLI CHUTNEY RECIPE| CORIANDER CHUTNEY| SIDE DISH FOR IDLI |DOSA

Kothamalli Chutney | Coriander chutney or green chutney (which my kiddos used to tell) is a simple one to make and a yet a tasty chutney to go with Idli | Dosa and sometimes with Curd rice too. My mom makes this Kothamalli chutney without coconut and dal. Though i like that way , since kiddos want this version of Kothamalli chutney, i made this few days back. Here is the recipe for Kothamalli chutney| Coriander chutney which makes a perfect side dish for idli and dosa.

I added 2 small onions to this chutney, but it is truly optional. You can make a no onion no garlic version too.

INGREDIENTS:

CORIANDER LEAVES 1 CUP (TIGHTLY PACKED)
URAD DAL 1 TBLSP
RED CHILLI 3-4
COCONUT (SCRAPPED) 1-2 TBLSP

MUSTARD SEEDS 1/4 TSP
SALT AS NEEDED

  • In a pan, add oil and add the urad dal , red chilli and shallots(if using)
  • When the dal turns golden brownand the onions are roasted add the washed coriander leaves.

  21. It is hard to find Indian spices here in Australia. I would love to try these dishes. Indians are very good at making outstandingly delicious food. Thanks for sharing the recipes, I'll make it in my own kitchen as I get time this weekend.
