Kothamalli thuvayal and simple aloo curry-side dish for dosa

The recent terrorist attack in the popular mumbai hotels has been a really shocking and awful incident.Its so painful to note that so many innocent people lost their lives to these cruel attacks. Lets pray for them and my heartfelt sympathies to the families of the victims.
dosa breakfast We have a filling brunch on most of the weekends. And for last weekend ,I made dosas. Its mostly sambar and aloo curry for the side dish. But this time, my hubby insisted on making his favorite kothamalli thuvayal or coriander chutney for the dosas. It was a good combination indeed. kothamalli thuvayal goes well with rotis and rice too. I thought of posting my recipe of aloo curry too which is always there when I make dosas. I am very fond of this combination.
