Coriander rice is perfect lunch recipe that I tried today for our lunch with potato fry. I have a small garden at home and had lot of coriander leaves so thought of trying this rice and came out really good and everyone at home liked it so much. Only once I had coriander rice previously when my neighbour in Gujarat gave me preparing without onion and garlic. This time I have prepared it in my style adding tomato and onion. Also prepared the coriander rice for my baby with coconut milk in baby version.
