Coriander

Thai: ผักชี (pak chee)


CorianderAmericans call this herb by it’s Spanish name, Cilantro, while the English call it Coriander. It’s the same herb. Coriander has a very strong smell and taste, and I’ve found people either really love or hate it. The leaves are commonly used to garnish soups, and the roots are used in a lot of dishes. Thais use the seeds as well for some curry pastes.

Storage: Store coriander in a glass filled with water inside the fridge. If stored this way, it should last 2 weeks or so. If it comes with a rubber band or twist tie around it, remove that first for longer shelf life.
