Coriander Chutney

A very simple and easy to make thovayal.
Coriander - 1 bunch
curry leaves - 10
Garlic - 4 pods
Tamarind paste - 1/2 tsp
Green chillies - 3
For seasoning
oil - 1 tblsp
urad dhal, mustard
currly leaves
Grind everything under the ingredients with
less water to a nice paste.
Heat a kadai with oil.
Add urad dhal, mustard, curry leaves.
After it splutters add the grinded paste.
Keep the flame in simmer.
Let the raw smell of the coriander goes out.
This would take 1o min.
Thovayal tastes great with curd rice or even
with Idli,Dosa.

oh.. no coconut? Almost all the thovaiyals i've had - mint or coriander have some coconut in the ingredient list.

I like it, I add mint too. Only problem with this chutney is when it turns dark,even though we add lemon juice to it. But tastes doesn't change though. Looks great Kamala!:)

For long time I'm in search for the perfect coriander chutney. I have tried different types, but somehow I'm not getting the taste my grandmother used to make. Let me try this method Kamala.
