Kothamalli Thogayal

Kothamalli (cilantro) thogayal is one of the simplest & healthiest rice mixes around. Using fresh cilantro in the recipe makes this rice mix very rich in anti-oxidants. I find the color & aroma of this thogayal very inviting.

Cilantro -  2 bunches
Urad dal - 1.5 tbsp
Red Chillies - 4-5 nos
Hing - 1 small piece
Tamarind - of small marble size
Oil & Salt - to taste

Wash and clean the cilantro leaves.

Heat oil in a pan. Fry hing, urad dal & red chillies until hing is fried & urid dal turns light brown. Transfer all the roasted ingredients into mixer and grind them along with fresh cilantro leaves, tamarind and salt.

Serve with hot steamed rice with a teaspoon of ghee/sesame oil and chips/vegetable fry on the side.
