Chettinad ground Vengaya kosu | அரைத்த வெங்காயகோஸ்

Chettinad ground Vengaya kosu | அரைத்த வெங்காயகோஸ் was another variety of vengayakos prepared in Chettinad which is served as side dish for idli and dosa. Commonly called as “arachu thalicha vengayakos”. The ingredients are the same as what we used in the other Chettinad vengaya kosu  , but here we grind all the ingredients together instead of cooking onions and tomatoes as in the previous one.  Here we do not add potato.

This is a very easy to prepare recipe in which we grind the ingredients all together and do seasoning. No special ingredients are required other than the onions and tomatoes with little coconut which everyone will have at home anyway.
