Coriander seeds chutney
Coriander seeds Chutney| Dhaniya chutney, an interesting chutney made using coriander seeds pairs up perfect with idli | dosa. Kothamalli vidai | vara kothamalli | Dhaniya in Tamil, the recipe of the chutney comes with  step by step pictorial explanation. I took video of coriander seed chutney recipe but somehow a part of it got missed. I recently had this chutney in a friend’s place and she told it is a common one in her place. Hooked by the taste of the Dhaniya chutney, i asked her for the recipe and i slightly tweaked it in the last part as i felt it should be crunchy, like how it was for the Kadalai paruppu chutney.

  3. Coriander seed chutney is a perfect side dish for idli| dosa and even goes well with chapati too.
