Coriander thogayal (kothamali thogayal)
As it’s easy and every one knows to make this it’s not anyway innovative or special.. but it’s healthy and good to consume.
Simple steps.. 👇🏾
In a pan add 1 tsp of oil/ghee to it add 2 tsp of urud dal, 6 pepper corns, 2 to 3 red chilies , and sauté them.. I added 1/2 tsp of thuvar dal too and 1/2 tsp of asafetida powder.
Wash and clean a bunch of coriander leaves. I don’t like to sauté the leaves as the fresh taste and smell of the leaves will get lost and even the color. To sustain them I just wash thoroughly and chop and add it to blender and to it add the sautéed items and 1 tbsp of grated coconut, 1 tsp of tamarind paste (or a small tamarind piece) and salt to taste.
Add 1/3 piece of fresh ginger to it and then grind it by adding 2tbsp of water. And all done and good to go with rice, idly, dosa and curd rice 🙈
INCREASE THE CHILIES ACCORDING TO YOUR SPICE LEVEL. RED CHILIES CAN BE SUBSTITUTED WITH GREEN TOO.
