Recipe for Pudina Kothamalli Thuvaiyal /Pudina Kothamalli Thogayal. Tamil style Mint and Coriander chutney made without coconut. Best accompaniment for idli, dosa and rice.

Here is a very simply everyday thuvaiyal recipe made with mint leaves and coriander leaves. This thuvayal is made without coconut and is a perfect side for idli, dosa and rice. This recipe comes together in less than 10-15 minutes and is perfect for beginners. This thuvayal / chutney packs a punch and is a house favorite.

Here is the video of how to do Pudina Kothamalli Thuvaiyal /Pudina Kothamalli Thogayal.

Wash and clean a cup each of the mint leaves and coriander leaves. Pick the leaves from the mint and discard the stem. As with coriander leaves, you can use both the stem and the leaves. I even like to add a couple of roots from the coriander leaves as it makes the chutney very flavorful. The roots of coriander leaves are used generously in Thai cuisine. Don’t add too many roots. Just 2-3 is fine. Make sure to clean well and there is no sand particles left.

Heat Indian sesame oil in a pan and add in the chana dal, urad dal and the tamarind. Saute on a low flame until the lentils are nice and golden.

Add in the dried red chillies. Saute for a few seconds. Remove this mixture from the pan and set aside on a plate to cool.

In the same pan, add in a teaspoon of Indian sesame oil. When the pan is hot, add in the Indian small onions (shallots) and regular onions. Add in the salt. Saute till the onions are soft and slightly brown.

Add in the tomatoes and the jaggery. The jaggery is optional but I really like the faint sweetness of jaggery and how it balances the whole dish. Spicy, sweet and tangy!!!!

Saute till the tomatoes are nice and soft. Add in the cleaned coriander leaves and mint leaves.

Now lets grind the pudina kothamalli thuvaiyal. First grind the lentils with quarter cup of water. Do not add a lot of water as the thuvaiyal should be thick consistency. Grind the lentils to a fine paste.
