Kothamalli Chutney | Kothamalli Thogayal Recipe | Coriander Chutney with coconut:

Kothamalli chutney is a tasty, different and easy chutney for idli and dosa. There are so many ways we can prepare coriander chutney. I have made this kothamalli chutney with coconut, dry chillies and tomato. Hence I would like to name it as Red Coriander chutney with coconut:) I can give you a guarantee that it is a different and quite easy chutney recipe.

My kid has started talking very well and nowadays he is asking us to take him to different places. He is demanding more and asking us to take to hotel too :) There is a hotel called Krishna Bhavan near my house. It is a veg hotel and it is a very good place to idli, dosa and other light food items. We always include dosa in our order as my son likes to have dosa with sambar. They prepare different chutney items and hence the chutneys make me to try in the next day itself. So, this time I am going to share with you all the kothamalli chutnry - red coriander chutney with coconut which I recently had there.
