Kothamalli Thokku (coriander Thokku)

Kothamalli is a Tamil word called Coriander leaves / Cilantro. This is simple and easy recipe. It is a great accompaniment with white rice, curd rice or chapati , dosa, idli etc. I usually buy it from Grandsweets or Snack aisles. But i wanted to trying it on my own. So I followed the recipe in youtube Srirangam Radhu's recipe. Recipe came out very tasty. But these didn't long last. It will last for 10-15days when stored / refrigerated.  It is a good homemade fresh thokku.
