Coriander also known as cilantro, Chinese parsley or dhania. It is a soft plant growing to 50 cm tall. The coriander seeds are generally used as a spice or an added ingredient in other foods or recipes, although sometimes they are eaten alone. All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and the dried seeds are the parts most traditionally used in cooking. We can cultivate the coriander in our own garden and use it whenever we need it for cooking.
