Hi Sarah,
Have you ever make use of the coriander roots beside leaves and powder? Give a try on this~wash and clean the roots, mash it and cut finely. You will get the best flavour of this.

I love all your dishes.Great clicks! This is the best cooking blog I have ever been to be honest!Can you be a little more specific on the amount of coriander leaves in this recipe?

Sarah Naveen said...

Hey Anon..
Thanks a lot for all the good words about vazhayila..

I normally add 1/4-1/2 cup of chopped coriander leaves.I love the taste . But it purely depends on your liking for coriander leaves...
