▪Grind all the ingredients mentioned under grinding using little water to fine paste

*onions are completely optional….but I like onions so used it..
*see that rice and coriander masala is equal in proportionate otherwise you won’t get desired taste(this is very important,nothing should be more masala or rice)…
