|Coriander Powder (Malli Thool)|
Coriander Powder is obtained by roasting coriander seeds. Most of the south indians use it for preparing non-veg curry. The flavor of coriander powder enhances the taste of any recipe. You can also add roasted red chilies along with coriander seeds. My MIL gives a bottle full of fresh ground coriander on our every visit. It is advisable to ground fresh coriander seeds when needed, since storing it for a long time will lose its flavor. Coriander powder has cooling properties and it is good for increasing appetite and also relieves from indigestion.
