Kothamalli Thogayal | Coriander Thogayal | Thogayal recipe

Kothamalli Thogayal/Thuvaiyal, a perfect accompaniment made from coriander leaves that goes well with both tiffen items and rice. If i were to pick one chutney/thogayal to eat for rest of my life,without a doubt, i would chose corinader chutney/thogayal. As i like it so much,often I have prepared both chutney and thogayal with coriander leaves.Usually i prepare chutney for breakfast/dinner and thogayal as one of the accompaniment of our lunch.Since we dry roast all the ingredients before grinding and later saute them till all the moisture evaporates and become thick, it stays well for days in room temperature itself.

  • You can use green chili instead of red ones.
  • While sauteing the thogayal, keep the flame in low to avoid burning at the bottom.
