Pudhina Kothamalli Thogayal

This Pudhina Kothamalli thogayal(Mint-Coriander chutney) is a combination of mint and coriander leaves along with coconut and spices.It is so easy to make and I have not used onion and garlic here.It goes well with Idli/Dosa and can also be mixed with rice.

Coconut grated
2-3 tblsp
Channa dhal

Idli served with Pudhina Kothamalli Thogayal

  • Take out mint leaves from the stalk and immerse in a bowl of water. After 5 mins any dirt/mud would have settled down.Now take out the leaves and rinse again.Clean the coriander leaves too.Chop the coriander leaves rougly.
  • Take little oil in a pan,add channa dhal,urad dhal and roast till golden brown.Add the red chilli,asafoetida and Tamarind and saute till chilli is roasted.Tranfer the contents to a plate.
  • Now add the chopped tomato and fry till it becomes mushy.Add the mint and coriander leaves and fry till it just shrinks in volume.
  • Allow to cool and grind everything together with coconut and salt to a fine paste.
  • Pudhina Kothamalli thogayal is ready to serve.
  • Adding Tomato is optional.Just proceed with the preparation mentioned above except for the addition of tomato if you don't want to use tomato.I add tomato when making it as a side dish for Idli/Dosa.
  • Add red chilli according to the spice level you want.
