CORIANDER(CILANTRO/KOTHAMALLI)PICKLE(THOKKU)

As a told in my earlier post Curry leaf Pickle, Coriander pickle is another Grand sweet popular instant food mix variety,which I tried and again it turned out good :))
Though i am not sure of the ingredients I tried same method as curry leaf but for chilli powder..(which i ran out )so added curry powder ,which i bought from a Korean store.It was a mix of coriander, turmeric and chilli.And for me the proportion of this mix looked like more of coriander and turmeric and less of chilli so I had mixed some chilli powder to suit our sambar taste.
Other than that every thing is same .
INGREDIENTS:(approximate measurements)
Coriander-2 bunches
Salt- to taste
Curry powder-about 2 tbs
Tamarind and jaggery pulp- 1/4 cup
Methi and mustard powder mixed-1/4 tsp(approximately)
Asefotida-1/4 tsp
Turmeric- 1 pinch
Water- little if needed  to grind.
Oil-1/2 cup(approximately)
Mustard- for seasoning

METHOD:
1)Wash and grind coriander to paste.
2)Heat oil and season with mustard .Add asefotida ,turmeric and mustard-methi powder.
3)Add little water to tamarind-jaggery pulp(i soaked 1 small amala size tamarid and 1/2 tbs of jaggery and took the pulp)and cook for couple of minutes.
4)Add coriander paste and cook along with jaggery-tamarind pulp till raw smell goes.
5)Cool and store in air tight container (inside fridge )

This goes well with idly, dosa,rice or even as spread on sandwich.

Please try out and let me know your views .
