Kothamalli Thogaiyal/Cilantro Thogaiyal/Coriander leaves Thogaiyal [Without Coconut]

Today I am posting a very healthy, flavourful and delectable Kothamalli Thogaiyal. I love this thogaiyal, because of its course texture, slightly tangy and spicy taste and packed with flavours. Kothamalli thogaiyal does not get spoilt very easily for about 5-6 days when handled properly with clean spoon. It is rich in vitmains, minerals and packed with fiber. When making either kothamalli chutney or kothamalli thogaiyal, don’t just use the leaves, use the tender part of the stem also, it is loaded with fiber and helps in digestion. Before going into the recipe do check out other Chutney and thogaiyal varieties here.

Here’s how to make Kothamalli Thogaiyal with step by step photos…

Ingredients

Kothamalli/Cilantro/Coriander leaves
1 bunch
Split Urad dal/Ullundhu
2 -3 tbsp
Dry red chillies
5
Tamarind
One small lemon size ball
Gingelly oil/Sunflower oil
2 tbsp
Salt
As needed
Preparation time: 5 minutes        
Cooking time: 10 minutes 
Serves: 4-6 
  
Method

Chop the roots of the cilantro bunch. Soak them in the water for about 5 minutes to get rid of dirt and sand. Wash it thoroughly at least 2-3 times to get rid of all the mud.


Heat 1 tsp of oil in a kadai, fry urad dal and dry red chillies until it changes to golden brown colour. Now transfer them to a plate.


In the same kadai, add the cilantro/kothamalli and toss around for few minutes and switch off the stove. Let the dal and the cilantro cool really well.


Now transfer the cilantro/kothamalli and the sautéed dal to the mixer and grind it along with tamarind and salt to a coarse paste with very little water.


Heat rest of the oil in a kadai, add the ground paste and saute for about 3-4 minutes or until there is no water.


Delicious, healthy and flavorful Kothamalli/Cilantro Thogaiyal is ready to be enjoyed.


Serve it hot with white rice, it is also a perfect accompaniment for idlis, dosas, rotis etc. 
You can also spread it on bread to make sandwiches.
