Coriandrum sativum also known as cilantro or Chinese parsley, is an annual herb in the family Apiaceae. All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and the dried seeds are the parts most traditionally used in cooking. Coriander is used in cuisines throughout the world.
The dry fruits are known as coriander seeds. It is described as warm, nutty, spicy, and orange-flavoured. Coriander is commonly found both as whole dried seeds and in ground form. Roasting or heating the seeds in a dry pan heightens the flavour, aroma, and pungency. Ground coriander seed loses flavour quickly in storage and is best ground fresh. Coriander seed is a spice in garam masala and Indian curries which often employ the ground fruits in generous amounts together with cumin, acting as a thickener in a mixture called dhana jeera.
In South Asian cooking, it is often combined with coriander seeds in a powdered mixture called dhana jeera. They are the main ingredient of the two south Indian dishes sambhar and rasam.
