Coriander is a slender, solid-stemmed plant belonging to the carrot and parsley family. It is used both as a herb (the leaves) and a spice (the dried fruits or seeds). Coriander seeds have a sweet, woody fragrance with peppery and floral notes. The taste is mellow and warm with a clear hint of orange peel. Coriander is rich in vitamin C and essential minerals making it great for overall health, promoting a healthy glow and strong immune system.
Coriander is generally used in larger amounts than other spices because it has a mild flavour. After dry roasting, coriander forms the base of many curry powders and masalas. It may be added to thicken and flavour casseroles, soups and stews, and is one of the key ingredients in pickling spice. Coriander is also used in condiments, seasonings and as an ingredient in sweet spice mixtures for cakes and biscuits. A fun fact about coriander is that before toothpaste was commonly used, coriander seeds were chewed as a breath freshener.
