Coriander leaves

 Coriander leaves Key facts Coriander is a herb that's widely used in Asian cooking - often only the roots and not the leaves are used; in the US, coriander is known as cilantro; coriander is pungent, so lends itself well to chutneys, salsas and relishes.

Fresh coriander has a peculiar effect on people: they often begin by not liking it much at all and end up being totally addicted to it – so please do not give up too early.

Although the flavour of fresh coriander is quite reminiscent of the crushed coriander seeds we are more familiar with, it is so much stronger and more pungent, so a little goes a long way.
