I love to add Coriander in all most all the  side dish whether it is curry, dal, samber or rasam. My mother in law makes different type of tokku ( which you can say as thick version of chutneys with little variations). My Mother in law taught me this variation of tokku long time back but today I tried this

Tomato - 2 in medium size
Green Chilli - 3-4 or as spicy you need

Split black gram dal- 2 tsp
Asafoetida - 2 pinch


  • Clean and wash coriander.
  • Heat a pan and add oil in this.
  • Add mustered and split black gram dal and allow mustered to crack.
  • Now add whole green chilli and fry it.
