kothamalli chutney

Coriander Chutney or Kothamalli chutney or kothamalli thuvayal is one of the healthy chutney I can say. But, as my kids do not eat this and ask for ground nut chutney or pottukadalai chutney always, I prepare this chutney rarely. Last saturday, I prepared this chutney, and clicked the snaps. This coriander chutney is my MIL's. speciality.
