Natco Coriander Seeds 65g jar
Natco Coriander Seed is the dried ripe fruit of an annual plant Coriandrum Sativum, an annual herb in the family Apiaceae belonging to the parsley family. The seeds are almost spherical, one end being slightly pointed, the other slightly flattened. There are many longitudinal ridges. The length of the seed is 3 - 5 mm (1/8” - 3/16”) and the colour, when dried, is usually brown, but may be green or off white. It has a sweet, citrus-like flavour and a warm and miild pungency.
Coriander seed is possibly the most important ingredient in Indian curries and dried roasted Coriander seeds or dhana dal are eaten as a snack. Coriander seeds are also an essential ingredient in tagines.
Both the seeds and leaves of coriander are used in Indian cooking but they are not interchangeable as they have distinctly different flavours.
Culinary Uses: The commonest use of coriander seed is in curry powders, where it is the bulkiest constituent, often rough ground in India to give a crunchy texture. The seeds can be likewise used in stews and soups. They blend well with smoked meats and game and feature in traditional English black pudding recipes and Italian mortadella sausage. Coriander is an ingredient of garam masala, pickling spices and pudding spices and is used in cakes, breads and other baked foods. Sugared comfits made from the seeds are a traditional sweetmeat and breath sweetener.
