    • Hi Renjith,

      Above adding salt is mentioned in the step 3 of method. Also you can do a taste test in the end and add salt if required. About coriander leaves its optional. If you prefer the taste of it, you can add in the end.

    • Hi Ritu,

      Thanks for bringing into my notice. I have updated it. Basically at different steps you are adding salt. If its non veg you are cooking, you add it at time of marinating, if that step is there. Then again you add it for the masala part, and then you need to do a taste test before taking it out of stove and add more salt, if its less. Infact taste test you can do any time. Its one of the basic step of cooking. Hope i am clear.
