Coriander is so aromatic that when we add these to most of the dishes as a garnish. But some dishes do require this for enhancing the flavour. Like when u add these to sambar or rasam it enhances the dish. So am going to give away a very easy to make recipe using coriander leaves as the main ingredient. This chutney no needs any cooking. So it is very easy to make and definitely a best option in every house in the busy mornings. It is a great combination for Idly or Dosa. You can add these in sandwiches also.
Hope you all will try and let me know how much you liked it.
