Coriander ( Kotha Malli) Chutney

Coriander leaves also known as cilantro or Malli or kotha malli (Tamil). It add unique flavour to dishes. Chopped coriander leaves is used as as garnish on cooked dishes!!!. Coriander chutney goes well with upma, idli, dosa, I like to have it with chappathi too....


1 bunch Coriander leaves

5 green chillies

3 tbsp pottu kadalai or Dalia

2 tbsp grated coconut

1 tsp Tamarind paste

2 tbsp oil

1 tsp mustard seeds

1 tsp channa dhal

1 tsp urad dhal

Salt to taste

curry leaves (optional)


Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan, fry coriander leaves, dalia, greenchillies and coconut for 10 minutes on medium heat. Remove from heat, allow to cool down.. Grind the fried ingredients to paste. Add water occationally.

Heat remaining oil in a pan for seasoning, add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering add channa dhal, curry leaves. Fry for a minute and add this seasoning to the chutney. Don't heat the ground mixture. The seasoning has to be added to it!!!!. No reheating!!!



That looks pretty neat. Nice pics as well.
