Coriander Thogayal (Kothamalli Thogayal Recipe) - Cilantro chutney for rice

Coriander Thogayal Recipe
Coriander Thogayal / Thuvayal is an excellent accompaniment for either plain rice or with any variety rice. I love to have thogayal as a part of my lunch menu, even with sambar and rasam rice. Amma makes coriander chutney often and this thogayal is a slight variation from it.

It feels just like yesterday mittus school closed for her vacations and here comes the reopening day....*Sigh* Though I kept saying for the past few days that I am waiting for her school to reopen not able to bear all her tantrums, the reality is I am starting to miss her...Guess I should first accustom to the schedule now.
