Pudina Kothamalli Podi | Mint Coriander Powder

Posted on May 26th, 2009

Hope everyone had a nice long weekend in this warm weather :) We had been to Wisconsin, America’s dairy land! We enjoyed the lush green farm lands, forest preserves and pure Michigan lake. We were surrounded by greenish color everywhere and it was very much soothing to our eyes. Green is my favorite color :) Wanted to try something green for the lunch too… so tried my fav pudina podi :D I added fresh coriander ( cilantro) leaves and the taste was very gud!!!
