Kothamalli Thogayal (Dry Coriander Chutney)



Thogayal can be made quickly with very few ingredients on hand. You don't even have to make a curry to go with this. A raitha or plain yogurt on the side would be perfect. My other favorite thogayal is the one made with Mendhiyam ( Fenugreek seeds). Check it out too. It's worth a try.

Ingredients:
Urud Dal - 4 tsp
Channa Dal - 3 tsp
Red Chillies - 3
Green Chilli - 1
Tomato - 1
Coconut - 1 tbsp
Hing - a pinch
Salt
Coriander Leaves/Cilantro - 1 small bunch
Oil - 3 tsp
Tamarind - a small piece



Method:
Heat oil in a pan.
Add urud dal, channa dal, red chillies, green chilli, hing and fry till the dals turn brown.
Add rest of the ingredients and fry for 5 minutes.
Cool and grind to a coarse paste by adding no more than 1 or 2 tsp water.
Mix with piping hot rice and ghee and enjoy!
Gotta have ghee in any rice dish! :)
