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.

Prep Time : 15 Mins


  • Coriander leaves - 1 cup 
  • Malaka / Red chillies - 4-6 (i've used Byadagi chillies)
  • Tamarind / Puli - a small lemon size or use paste (1 tbsp, i have used paste)
  • Asafoetida / hing / Periyangum - 1/2 tsp
  • Chanadal / Kadalparppu - 2 tbsp
  • Urad dal / Ulthuparppu - 2 tbsp
  • Rocksalt or Sea salt - to taste
  • Oil - 2 tbsp (i have used Olive oil)
  1. Chop the coriander leaves trim the stems and clean and rinse thoroughly and drain water completely
  2. In a pan heat oil then add chanadal, uraddal, chillies fry together till dal gets golden color then add tamarind fry for 2 mins.  Remove from the flame let them cool a bit then make a fine powder later on add hing / asafoetida and corinader leave ( do not add water) becoz corinader leaves itself moist. Grind into a smooth paste. Add salt and blend it again.
  3. Take out and transfer into a bowl. Heat oil (2 tbsp olive oil) in a pan pour it into thokku mix well and transfer into glass jar.
