Coriander ( kothamalli ) Rice

                                Coriander rice is often one among the different Variety Rice in the menu of the auspicious Bangle Ceremony ( Valaikappu Function ) in the Coimbatore city.But the credit of this recipe goes to my friend Ms. Suganthi.This rice is mainly good from the health point of view with less fat.The rice goes well with the Potato or Vazhaikkai Fry.
