Basic green paste, this is a coriander-based gravy, which is pale green in colour. It is a little spicy and sour in taste compared to other gravies because of the green chillies and the lemon juice.

Ensure that the stem portion of the coriander is not used much since the stem may impart a bitter after-taste after grinding. It is a versatile gravy and can be use with an assortment of vegetables, although it goes best with the humble corn!
