Coriander Chutney | Kothamalli Chutney |Side dish for Idly or Dosa

Actually i was wondering, why didnt i post this chutney recipe so far, at least i make this twice in a week.I prepare this chutney exactly the way my mom makes and it's my most favorite chutney. Mom used to add skinned urad dal for this chutney. It gives wonderful aroma and excellent taste. Give a try to this version of coriander chutney,you wouln't be disappointed for sure.

Remove from kadai and put it in mixie jar, in the same kadai add the coconut and roast till aromatic.
Allow the roasted ingredients to cool, in the mean time, remove the coriander leaves from stem, no need to remove all the stem, just remove the thicker stems on the end.
Add the coconut in the mixie along with dal,chili,tamarind & garlic, grind it to a coarse mixture. In this,add coriander leaves & enough water.
Add salt and grind into smooth paste. Heat the kadai for tempering with 1/2 tsp of oil.

If need add water to adjust the consistency.When it's about to come boil, switch off the flame.
That's it Coriander Chutney is ready to serve with dosa or idly.
We had it with Dosa
  • Roasting coconut helps to increase the self life of chutney.
  • If you're making this chutney for packing, roast the coconut till it becomes slightly brown, it really increases the self life a long.
  • You can use green chili instead of reds ones.
  • Skinned urad dal gives excellent aroma & taste. I recommend to use that if you have.
