Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) is an annual herb in the Apiaceae family, that is also known as cilantro. As a fresh herb it tastes a little tart, almost like a herby lime, due to the aromatic compounds – linalool and pinene. A small percent of the population how ever find that coriander tastes like soap, as they have a gene that detects aldehyde – another natural organic compound.
These semi-crushed dried coriander seeds retain a herbaceous citrus flavour, especially when ground in a mortar & pestle, but they have a warmer, nutty taste and aroma than the fresh leaves.
How to Use:
Kibbled coriander seeds can be used as is, or gently roast in a dry pan over low heat to bring out extra flavour and aroma. These semi crushed seeds are fabulous in pickles and chutney, or add to a bouquet sachet for use in casseroles and broths. Grind to a powder in a mortar & pestle for garam masala or your favourite spice mix. Also delicious in soups, chilli, dahl, or refried beans. Add coriander seeds to herbal teas and chai blends to add a warming note.
