Kothamalli thuvayal and simple aloo curry-side dish for dosa
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.
