CORIANDER LEAVES GOJJU

CORIANDER LEAVES GOJJU

This gojju or chutney like dish is commonly made by us Konkanis. We call this "Kothambari Palle" Gojju which is the Konkani term for Coriander (also known as Cilantro)  leaves. As you know, these are commonly used in many of our recipes. Coriander has health benefits due to its having antioxidants.

This gojju is hot and sweet at the same time and makes a nice accompaniment with the main meal.
This is easily one of my favourite gojjus. Try it for yourself and I am sure you will like it.
