Kothamalli thokku

This  is a simple recipe. But this kothamaali thokku has along shelf life.

To make this thokku  all we need is ,

1. Kothamalli  ( coriander leaves) one bunch .

2. Urad dhal  1/4 cup.

3. Asafoetida.

4. Red Chillies as per your taste.

4. Tamarind  to the size of a big lemon.

5. Salt to taste.

6. Little oil ,to fry urad dhal and chillies.

Clean the coriander leaves(Kothamalli) and keep it cut aside.

Pour oil in a pan. and heat it . Add  Urad dhal , red chillies and  fry it golden brown.Fry the asafoetida. Keep it aside.

Put asafoetida, fried Urad dhal, red chillies , salt  in a mixie and grind to a  coarse powder . Then. add tamarind to it and  grind it again for a few seconds. After that,  add  the cut coriander leaves  and  let the mixie run for a minute or two.

It will look like this 

If you find the thokku very sticky ,You can fry some more  urad dhal. powder it  and add to the thokku .Ofcourse mix it  well.

Then remove it and keep in a glass bottle or a stainless steel container.
To keep good health let us avoid plastic containers.
If you prefer, you can even keep it referigerated.

Take it with curd rice. Oh! That is heavenly.

I would be happy if I get feedbacks for the recipe .
