But we talk: Cilantro, Dhaniya, Chinese Parsley

DescriptionCoriander seeds have travelled widely off from their home base in Romania to become a ubiquitous spice in South Asia. Its largest use is as the key ingredient in a wide variety of curry powders including garam masala. It is seldom used raw and whole, but is often coarsely ground or powdered. The seeds are brittle so they crush easily, but lightly roasting them before grinding brings out their flavor more distinctly. Its a light spice (by weight) and a mild spice by flavor. So its used in handfuls or cupfuls.
