Green Chutney | How to make Kothamalli Chutney

Kothamalli Chutney

Kothamalli Chutney or Green Chutney is a simple and easy condiment that you can make to serve with Idli or Dosa. This chutney is so simple and tastes wonderful with soft hot Idlis.

We often make this chutney with some changes to the same proportion and each version tastes great. Off late things have been quite hectic on the work front and I have been so held up that even when the dishes were done and ready, I just couldn’t sit to write these.

So my themes for this month have been haphazard and mixed up. I ended up picking up the easiest one I can share right away and it happens to be this chutney. We are starting the BM#94, week 2 where I am going to do colourful dishes.

My original idea for the theme was to showcase a dish that was presented with different natural food colours. I ended up picking up only one colour that was retained. I hope I will be excused for being so simple and boring as well.

  1. No recipe is boring Valli, because this coriander chutney is totally new to me. I rarely make only coriander chutney except for chaat chutney. I’m going to give this yummy chutney sometime soon.

  2. There is nothing boring about this kothamalli chutney Valli. It is so vibrant and I can have just the chutney as a snack. Yeah, I am that crazy of it. With hot idlis, it is super tempting.

  3. To me, green chutney is always coriander chutney. This coriander chutney with coconut sounds yum. I’m having some idlis already lying in my fridge. Will make this chutney now to enjoy those in the evening ­čÖé
