Coriander leaves have a strong, perfumed taste and scent of lemon, parsley and resin - some people say that it has a slightly soapy taste. You either hate or love the taste of it!
In USA and Canada, the plant is called cilantro.
Coriander seeds have a very different taste from fresh coriander. Seeds are more fruity and nutty than leaves, stems and roots. You may bring out the nutty taste of coriander seeds by dry-roasting them briefly on a hot frying pan.
Use whole or ground organic coriander seeds for soups, Indian dishes, thai curries and wok dishes. The leaves may also be used for herbal tea.
