One of my favourite events under Taste Of India is Herb Mania. This month its my favorite Coriander. This is one herb , that will enhance the flavour of the dish you prepared no matter how bad it is. I always depend on coriander as a Natural Taste Enhancer. The aroma of Coriander will draw people to your dishes. Given below is my entry for the event - Coriander Kootu
Coriander - 2 cups
Moong Dal ( Pasi Paruppu ) - 1 cup
Green Chillie - 1 or 2
Salt to taste
Mustard Seeds and Oil for seasoning
Steam Moong Dal along with Green chillie in a cooker. Remove from fire and mash the dal. In a wok heat oil and add mustard seeds. Once they sputter add the dal along with cut coriander leaves. Bring the mixture to a boil after adding salt. This kootu will taste good with pepper rasam or for that matter any rasam. This kootu can be made very quickly and will taste different.
