Kothamalli Thokku/ Corriander Chutney

I had two bunch of corriander leaves, and as the herb mania-corriander event, hosted by siri, is ending today, i prepared this corriander/kothamalli thokku yesterday for dinner, to serve along with my Rava idli's. It was so tasty, with little tanginess, worth of trying it. It suit's best with Idli, Dosa. I got this recipe from Aval Vikatan's supplement- 30 Thokku Varieties.

Kothamalli / Corriander Leaves


Corriander Leaves - 2 bunch(4 cups)
Round Red Chilli - 5 (this will be of medium spice)
Fenugreek seeds - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 3 tsp
Mustard - 1/4 spoon
Tamarind - a small lemon size / or a pinch of tamarind

Kothamalli Thokku


yyu Wash the Corrainder Leaves.

yyu In a pan, heat a spoon of oil, add the red chilli, fenugreek and roast them till they get croasted. now add asafoetida powder, roasted fenugreek and red chilli's to the mixer grinder.

yyu Add the washed corriader leaves, tamarind, salt and 1/4 cup water to the mixer grinder and grind them along with dry red chilli's fenugreek seeds and asafoetida powder very smoothly.

yyu Now in the Kadaai or Thick Bottomed pan heat the remaining oil, add mustard, when it cracks, add the grinded paste and let it boil for 5 minutes.

yyu After that reduce the flame and stir them till they start sticking to pan. it should go dark green in colour, thats the end point.

It should be like our home ground mehendi mix. Refer the pic above.

i used just 3 red chilli's in place of 10 chilli's, as we don't prefer very spicy thokku.

Serve with Hot Idli's. I served it with Rava Idli's.
