Kothamalli Thokku(Coriander Thokku)


Very simple and tasty side dish made with coriander when we have it in large quantity. In olden days when many didn’t have refrigerator in their house these thokku items were very popular. As coconut, tomato and onion are not used this will not get spoiled fast.



Ingredients
Coriander leaves-As much you can spare
Chillies-5(for the quantity of coriander I have taken)
Tamarind little
Urudh dhal-1 table spoon


Method
Wash the coriander. Cut into small pieces. Drain the water completely. Keep the kadai in the stove and pour 1 teaspoon oil. Fry the chilies and urudh dhal till the dhal turns golden in color .Now add the coriander and sauté till you feel there is not much water in the coriander. Add the tamarind and salt when it is in the stove itself. Allow the mixture to cool and grind it in the small jar without adding water. If used for tiffen, while eating you can mix little water for the quantity going to be used as the thokku will be too thick in consistency
