Taste and Aroma
Coriander seeds have a lemony citrus flavour when crushed which is also described as warm, nutty and spicy.
Quick Kitchen Tips
Store coriander in a cool, dark place. Buy the amount that you think you will be able to use within one year for whole seeds and six months for ground coriander.
1 teaspoon ground coriander = 1 teaspoon of whole coriander seeds.
How to use when cooking:
Coriander is best added to dishes just before serving for maximum flavour.
Coriander powder is put in to give the dish a citrus-like taste. The taste of the coriander also helps blend the tastes of all other spices that are added to the dish.
