Coriander Seed Whole
Botanical Name - Coriandrum sativum
Other Names - Chinese parsley, yuan sui zi
Origin - Egypt
Coriander is the seed of the herb cilantro.
Coriander seed is a staple seasoning in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. In India, coriander seed is briefly pan roasted and eaten whole as a snack known as dhana dal. The seeds are also dry roasted to release aroma and flavor before it is ground and added to curries or other foods.
This tiny, oval-shaped seed not only lends bright flavor to foods, but it is also remarkably nutritious. A 100g serving exceeds 100% of the recommended daily allowance of fiber and more than 200% of iron. Coriander seed is also a significant natural source of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and zinc.
Flavor Profile - Slightly peppery. Blends well with pickling spices and savory foods.
In sharp contrast to the leaf of the latter, coriander seed lends a warm and slightly citrus-like flavor to foods.
Whole coriander seeds are used to infuse flavor into culinary vinegars and oils. The seeds are also used in pickling and brine spice mixes.
Use powdered coriander seed in sauces, sausages, stews, chutneys, curries, chili, custards, puddings, breads and baked goods.
