Fresh Coriander Leaf Bunch
Coriander, Coriandrum sativum, is an erect annual herb in the family Apiaceae. All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and the dried seeds (as a spice) are the parts most traditionally used in cooking. The leaves are variously referred to as coriander leaves, fresh coriander, dhania, Chinese parsley, or (in the US and commercially in Canada) cilantro. This can also be used as a herb.
The fresh leaves are an ingredient in many foods, such as chutneys and salads, salsa guacamole, and as a widely used garnish for soup, fish and meat. As heat diminishes their flavour, coriander leaves are often used raw or added to the dish immediately before serving. In Indian and Central Asian recipes, coriander leaves are used in large amounts and cooked until the flavour diminishes.The leaves spoil quickly when removed from the plant, and lose their aroma when dried or frozen.
