          Kothamalli thokku recipe with step by step pictures.
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.
