Coriander - The Giver of Good Health

Coriander - The Giver of Good Health

In the world of spices, coriander powder is more or less used as a back-up to the regular spices. It is not very strong but instead adds a very subtle earthy, juicy and peppery flavour.

The origin of coriander powder can be traced back to the seeds of the cilantro plant. All parts of the cilantro plant are believed to be edible, but the fresh leaves and the dried seeds are the parts most traditionally used in cooking.

Coriander powder is prepared by roasting the dried coriander seeds gently and then grinding them. The idea behind roasting the dried seeds is to bring out the flavour contained in the seeds.

Coriander powder is extensively used in Latin American, Spanish, Mexican and Indian cuisines as well as in the preparation of several Ayurvedic medicines. It is a common ingredient for garnishing spicy curries, marinades, chillies, sauces, soups and other dishes, and wonderfully amalgamates with onions, chillies, tomatoes and potatoes.

The quintessential Indian Curry is symbolised by the famous ‘C’ club, which consists of Coriander powder, Chilli powder, Cinnamon and Cumin powder.
