Nothing can beat the smell of Cilantro / Kothamalli in Indian cooking. Here is my version of kothamalli thogayal. Enjoy!!!
Kothamalli / Fresh Coriander / Cilantro - 1 cup (with stem)
Tamarind paste - 1 TBSP
Oil - 1 TBSP
Salt - to taste
Urad dal / Ulutham paruppu - 2 TBSP
Red chilli - 1
Green chilli - 1
Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
Ginger - small piece
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Peanuts - 2 TBSP (optional)
- Heat oil in a skillet and fry all the ingredients in the roast list to golden brown. Let it cool.
- Grind the roasted ingredients with salt and tamarind past with little water to a coarse paste.
- Now add the kothamalli/ fresh coriander and grind until well incorporated.
