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?

Reply
admin December 12, 2012 - 9:14 am

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.
