Green Paste

This spicy and thick Green Paste adds a wonderful flavour to curries and pulaos. It has a striking flavour of coriander and mint, balanced by the team work of poha and grated coconut. This innovative twist reduces the amount of coconut used and totally removes peanut from the scene, thereby reducing the calorie count of this exciting paste.

This green paste looks like green chutney, but it tastes really different. coriander and mint leaves is always a great combo. This paste has a real good taste which is also used in kadhis and other recipes to enhance the taste..
