The aroma in the green paste consists of coriander and coconut and this is just divine. It's all about the green paste. Cook it.

A good dal with a tempering of just the green paste and no other spices or condiments required. Don't forget to add lemon juice to the paste as it is necessary for that green colour of this dal.
