IDEAL IN INDIAN AND MOROCCAN DISHES
Coriander Seed is a versatile spice that has a mild sweet, citrus flavour which complements both sweet and savoury dishes. Use generously.
Both the seeds and leaves (see Coriander Leaf-Cilantro) are used in cooking but are not interchangeable as they have distinctly different flavours. Coriander is known to have been used in Egypt since 1550BC for culinary and medicinal purposes. India is the largest producer of Coriander which is used extensively in curry powders.
Coriander Seeds should be a uniform, light brown colour, an even size and unblemished. D-Linalool is the principal flavour - giving volatile oil.
