Kothamalli chutney
Kothamalli Chutney | Coriander chutney | Dhaniya 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.

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.
