Coriander rice
I tasted this yummy coriander leaves rice| kothamalli sadam  in my friends place. She is a good cook and makes many new dishes.It was so simple and easy to make also.
Since I prefer simple recipes,which will ultimately give me a helping hand  on lazy mornings,I asked for the recipe. I made it twice,turned out quite nice and am sure you all will like it.
This recipe doesn’t  need onion or garlic .

  28. what is the purpose of adding oil while grinding?
    do we need to saute corainder leaves?
    will we get raw smell when we add the paste as such?

    1. Adding oil gives a good texture to the rice.
      You never get raw smell of coriander in the rice. If you want add a das of lemon juice at the last.

  29. Tried was easy to make and had a wonderful taste and color added few paneer pcs in the end.v nice recipe
