What is "coriander"?

Coriander, also known as cilantro in some regions, is a versatile herb with delicate, lacy leaves and small, round seeds. The leaves have a bright, citrusy flavor with hints of parsley and mint, while the seeds have a warm, aromatic flavor with notes of citrus and spice. Coriander is widely used in cuisines around the world, particularly in Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian, and Latin American dishes. The leaves are commonly used fresh as a garnish or ingredient in salads, salsas, curries, soups, and sauces, while the seeds are often ground and used as a spice in cooking or baking. Coriander adds depth and complexity to recipes, with its distinctive flavor profile enhancing both savory and sweet dishes.
