Coriander Rice Recipe with step by step pictures. Simple kothamalli rice or cilantro rice made with cooked rice, coriander leaves thokku.
I made some nice rice recipe which is one of my favourites. It is packed with full of flavour but so easy peasy to make..In fact the cool thing in this is..You can make the masala in bulk and store in freezer. So if you need to pack a quick lunch or make something very fast, take some masala from the freezer warm it in a kadai or microwave and mix rice with that. How easy is that. But it is not hard to make from scratch too, I made this within 15 mins. I made this a month back along with some mint rice. I served it with papad, curd and papad.

consumed to treat the common cold and fever because it is thought to have medicinal properties.
Fresh coriander leaves, basmati rice, spices, and vegetables are used to make the fragrant, flavourful, and spiced rice known as coriander rice.

The flavour of the coriander leaves should be crisp, tart, and citrusy. The dried fruit of the plant, which can be used whole or ground, is coriander seeds. It has an earthy, tart, and sweet flavour with a toasted floral aroma.
Onions are considered a basic ingredient or the foundation of Indian cooking and are used to make any gravy, curry, or bhuna dish. The flavour and aroma of onion transforms any ordinary dish into a mouthwatering and delectable one.
Fresh ginger has a slightly peppery and sweet flavour, as well as a pungent and spicy aroma. Fresh ginger, like garlic, softens with cooking. It's a common flavouring in Asian dishes. Salad dressings, baked goods, soups, curries, meats, and desserts like
gingerbread and gingersnaps are all flavoured with ground ginger.
