Malli thuvayal (Coriander chutney)

Coriander chutney( malli thuvayal)
Mint chutney(pudina thuvayal)
Curry leaf chutney(karuveppilai thhuvayal)
Malli chutney even though it is not a specialist Chettinad recipe, this recipe is blogged early because it is a very tasty, healthy and most important very easy one to prepare. These thuvayals will be an excellent spread for bread and other items which need a spread. It will taste excellent with dosa and idly too. The procedure for mint, coriander and curry leaf chutney is almost the same.

Ingredients




Coriander or mint or curry leaves-1 cup ( 1 kattu)
Raw chillies-6 (if big use less)
Small onion -20(if not available big onion-1 or 2)
Grated coconut 4 table spoons
Tamarind-a very small piece
Salt to taste
Procedure
Keep the kadai in the stove. Pour 1 spoon oil. When the oil gets heated first add the onions and chilies .Let it cook for a minute. Then add the grated coconut allow this also to cook for a minute. Finally add the coriander. Mix everything well twice or thrice with the spatula. Switch off the stove. Coriander need not get cooked much. If you are using mint or curry leaf instead of coriander allow those also to cook for 2 minutes. Coriander tastes good without much cooking. After the mixture gets cooled add the salt and tamarind and grind it in the mixie. It is not a must that you should season it after grinding, as everything is put in the stove before grinding. But if you are having guests then seasoning will make it more attractive and tasty. Season it with ½ spoon mustard and urudh dhal.

I have been to sevaral sites for recipes but none of them gave me the feeling "Yes I want to try it" Yours gives that feeling and the bloggers with tips add more flavor to the recipes.

I have been following your blog for quite some time and i love the recipes. i have a question about using Tamarind. I have heard some people say its not good for health so i started substituting it with Amchur(mango powder) and it tastes the same. do you know the right information on this! thanks
