Coriander Rice(Kothamalli Sadam)

Coriander rice is very healthy and nutritious.This can make good lunch box meal with some yogurt or pickle.This looks very appetizing and nice.I would always try to clean up my fridge before I go for produce shopping. I was out of most vegetables and there was nothing I could see a bunch of coriander leaves , so I planned for coriander rice for lunch. Green chili is the only spicy ingredient added to it, so adjust the quantity accordingly.

  • Some of them don’t prefer to use garlic.But the addition of garlic gives the aromatic smell for this coriander rice.
  • If making for kids then use less chilies.Coriander paste is added while cooking the rice which gives bright green color to the cooked rice.
  • Few whole spices are added in the oil which makes it so fragrant and mild flavored rice.
