History and background

The history of coriander is quite well documented – it was even mentioned in the Bible (Exodus 16:31). Its known usage dates back much further, however, to around 5000 B.C. By 1550 B.C., coriander seeds were known to be used at burial ceremonies, and it’s said that the ancient Romans and Greeks also appreciated their flavour and medicinal properties.

How to use coriander seeds

All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and the dried seeds are the parts most traditionally used in cooking. A variety of different cuisines use coriander seeds; you’ll find them in popular dishes from Asia, Europe, Africa and more. From sauces, marinades and condiments to curry dishes and plenty in between, coriander seeds can take all kinds of dishes to the next level.

In the East it is used as a condiment, and added to curry powder. In the northern countries of Europe, the seeds are sometimes mixed with bread. In Arab cookery, coriander seeds are very popular and are used with lamb, kid, and meat stuffing. Coriander with cumin is a common combination and features in falafel and in the Egyptian appetizer dukka. Coriander also goes well with ham and pork, especially when orange is included. It enhances fish dishes, and with other spices, may form a delicious coating for spiced fish or chicken. Coriander complements chilli and is included in many chilli recipes, such as harissa, the hot North African red pepper sauce. It may be added to cream or cottage cheese.

The main consumption of Coriander seeds in this country is in flavouring of certain alcoholic liquors. Distillers of gin also make use of it.
