We can use this recipe for making of sandwich which is not only colorful but also healthy.

Sometimes we get fresh coriander leaves at a dead cheap price in the Indian market, then that is the best time to procure leaves and make this recipe. As this recipe can be stored for long period. I have read an article where they said that once the recipe is done, it can be stored for a week in a refrigerator.

If the quantity is more, you can freeze it in ice cube container and then store in a zip lock wrappers. Freezing should be done immediately after making this recipe. Whenever there is the requirement you can de-freeze and use them. You can season and use the recipe. In our recipe, I have not used onions to increase shelf life, if you like to have then add onions by making partition of the quantity you would like to use.
