Kothamalli Thogayal recipe, Coriander Thogayal

Kothamalli Thogayal | Coriander thogayal is a simple recipe made using coriander leaves, red chili and coconut as main ingredients. We generally make pudina thogayal, kothamalli thogayal, paruppu thogayal, thengai thogayal at home. Yesterday while browsing through the Recipe index page of Jeyashri's Kitchen, i realised it never posted the recipe of kothamalli thogayal. I have posted kothamalli thokku recipe but not thogayal. This thogayal tastes great with plain rice and perfect combo for curd rice too. It goes well with dosa and  paratha too. Try out this simple South Indian style Kothamalli Thogayal and enjoy your meal.
