Kotambari palya Saaru/ Coriander leaves saaru

                  Corainder leaves are one of my favourite herbs. I just love using it in my dishes be it South Indian or our own Konkani cuisine. I have already posted  the Gojju recipe prepared using coriander leaves. Today I am sharing the recipe of Saaru using this herb which I learnt from my Amma. A very simple and easy recipe with very few ingredients .
