  • Let it cool for a few minutes and then only add the Lemon Juice. Lemon Juice alters taste when heated up and turns bitter, so that the flavors remain pure and well rounded, you need to add it only once the sauce has cooled down a bit.
  • Serve the sauce warm on the cooked pasta and garnish with chopped Coriander leafs.
