Kothamalli Thogayal | கொத்தமல்லி தொவையல் | Coriander Thogayal | Kothamalli Thovayal

Coriander Thogayal | Thuvayal is a spicy and aromatic accompaniment that makes a divine combination with hot steamed rice and ghee. You can also pack it for lunch box. Coriander leaves is rich in iron, improves digestion and loss of appetite. Normally these leaves are mostly used for garnishing and people tend to avoid it. This recipe is a great way to include this healthy greens in our diet. I am sharing my mom's recipe today. This is my hubby's fav thogayal.

Ingredients :-
------------------
 Coriander leaves    1 small bunch  
 Tamarind    marble size  
 Red Chillies   4-5  
 Gingely oil   1 tbsp  
 Hing  generous pinch  
 Mustard    ¼ tsp
 Salt  to taste

Method :- 
-------------     
1). Wash the coriander leaves nicely under running water to get rid of sand or dust particles. Roughly chop them discarding the stem and add it to mixer. Grind coriander leaves, tamarind, red chillies and salt with little water to a semi coarse paste in thogayal consistency. Keep aside.
2). Heat gingely oil in a pan and add mustard. When mustard splutters add curry leaves, hing and saute till aromatic. Then add the grounded thogayal and cook till you see oil in the sides. Saute till the water content in thogayal get absorbed and let thogayal thicken a bit and switch off
Serve with hot steamed rice or any variety rice

Notes :-
----------
# Thogayal is meant to be coarse so carefully add water while grinding. 
# You can use any cooking oil instead of gingely oil. Gingely oil gives nice smell and shelf life.
