South Indian Kotamalli (Coriander) Chutney


1 bunch Coriander leaves
5 green chillies
3 tbsp pottu kadalai or Dalia
2 tbsp grated coconut
1 tsp Tamarind paste
Salt to taste


2 tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp channa dhal
1 tsp urad dhal
curry leaves

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan, fry coriander leaves, dalia, green chillies and coconut for 10 minutes on medium heat. Remove from heat, allow to cool down. Grind the ingredients to a paste. Add water if necessary.
Heat remaining oil in a pan for seasoning, add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering add channa dhal, curry leaves. Fry for a minute and add this seasoning to the chutney.
