Fresh Coriander tokku(chutney) and Award!!!

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,
One more award from PJ of seduce your Tastebuds!!! Thanks PJ. I am really honoured!!

A gift for myself for getting the award!!! how do you like this necklace made of red chilly and fresh coriander and a pendent made of jaggery!!(Forgot to keep methi seeds as pearls in between the leaves!! ) Hahaha, any one like to order the ornament!!! you can do it yourself!!! Honestly, the inspiration came from Nithya of 4th Sense Samayal!!! Thanks a lot Nithya.

Coming to the recipe for Fresh Coriander tokku, which is again the trial of TV show. It takes very less time to make but tastes good with chapati and hot rice. Still I have to try with bread or dosa!!

Fresh Coriander - 2 bunch, washed and cleaned
Dry red chilly - 4 to 6 (according the taste and the variety)
Methi seeds - 1 tsp
Jaggery - 2 tbsp
Tamarind paste - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
For tempering,
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Dry roast the red chilly and methi seeds. When cold, add other ingredients and put in a mixie or blender to make fine paste. Adjust the seasoning.
Heat oil in small kadai, add mustard seeds. Off the stove and add hing. Add this to the ready paste.
The Fresh coriander tokku is ready to serve.
This award comes with a meme and I have to say 10 honest things about me.

Check me out :

1. I love reading, reading and reading.(Reading anything that is handwritten or printed, anytime I mean it, I read while cooking also!!!!, )But prefer to read autobiography, philosophical and self development books.

2. I love Maths.

4. I am a quite person, with very few friends.
5. I love animals but do not like pets(Sorry!!)(same pinch, PJ)

7. I get adjusted in any condition, under any circumstances.
8. I appreciate honesty.
9.I love to do Yoga, Meditation and exercise(which I am doing past many years!!)
10. I think 9 things are enough to know me!!!

As always, this award too comes with the certain rules and here they are
1. I must list 10 honest things about myself
2. I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog.I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers & list their links
