About This Product

Organic Coriander Seed

Coriander is a member of the Apiaceae family and is a close cousin of carrots, parsley, and celery. It is native to parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia, and is now also widely cultivated and available in the West. 

Coriander is one of the key ingredients in curry powder, alongside turmeric, fenugreek, and cumin. It’s warm, nutty, and citrusy flavor also spices up soups, sauces, and meat dishes. In parts of Europe, coriander is used to flavor gin and you’ll also find it in Belgian-style white beer. 

Many different types of food can be brightened by the addition of Coriander Seeds. The Moroccan condiment and seasoning known as Harissa uses coriander together with chiles, garlic, cumin, mint and olive oil. Another Moroccan dish that uses the spice is couscous, which is a quickly cooked grain that can be brightened with the addition of vegetables and fruits, and is typically served as a side dish to lamb. It can be added to a yogurt marinade used the flavor fish fillets.

The Indian rice dish called Biryani uses coriander as part of the flavoring. Tandoori Chicken calls for ground Coriander Seed, along with cloves, ginger, garlic, cumin and cinnamon to bring the flavors to a peak in this poultry dish. You can make a spice rub using coriander to go on meat cuts for the grill, such as pork chops. Vegetable-based dishes such as curries that feature spinach, lentils and beans, as well as onion and tomato often include coriander in the spice mix. An Indian-influenced rice dish can be created with cashews, coconut milk, raisins and turmeric, with coriander added for zest. A flank steak can be cooked using coriander to give it a Thai flavoring, and pasta salads can be jazzed up with a pinch of the fragrant seasoning.
