Fresh coriander is hard to come by during summer and when available, its exorbitantly priced. My vegetable vendor who supplies fresh vegetables, grown in his small farm, brought 2 bunches of fresh coriander. Delighted, I put my favorite herb to use by way of an easy breezy chutney to go with our morning breakfast, Dosa. Makes for a wonderful side with tiffins like dosas and idlis.
