Then add the sauted coriander leaves and grind them into coarse. Just use pulse option.
Yummy flavourful coriander thokku is ready.
Serve with curd rice or mix with hot white rice with a teaspoon og gingelly oil and relish….

NOTES:
Pat drying the leaves will help to saute them easily and the tokku will be good for more days.
Some may use the coriander leaves with out sauting, but sauting gives nice flavour and dryness to the thokku.
Adjust the spiciness by adding or reducing the red chillies.
Adding jaggery will help to adjus the taste , so it is highly recommended. But if you don’t like that mild sweetness, avoid jaggery.
