Kothamalli podi | Coriander leaves (Cilantro) Powder

Few days ago I had prepared Pudina Kothamalli podi. This time I wanted to try with Kothamalli (Cilantro) alone. These podis are handy when we feel tired to prepare lavish lunch. Podi bug has caught me and am trying out lots of podi recipes… :mrgreen:

He he… 🙂 S Divya, We can clean them but should allow the greens to dry in shade (drain the water well) before powdering them. This way the kothamalli podi stays fresh for longer time.

I love this podi…used to make it earlier…..but dint do it for a long time…ll make it again 🙂
