Coriander Rice

Rice dishes are ideal for picnics and parties as they are less messy and easier to handle especially when travelling from one place to another.  This is a dish which is easy and quick to prepare as the coriander leaf thogayal, chutney or pachadi can be prepared in advance and mixed with fresh hot rice!

3 Cups Water
½ Cup Coriander Leaf Thogayal or Chutney
