Coriander is sometimes called "Chinese parsley" due to its visual similarity to parsley. Here in Germany, the mildly tangy, sweet and spicy seeds are primarily used to season meat, bread or sweet Christmas treats. In Asian cooking, the fresh, slightly spicy and citrus-flavoured coriander herb is a common ingredient in all kinds of different dishes. In India, coriander is a vital part of curry spice mixes thanks to its rich flavour. Thanks to its diverse range of uses, coriander is a must-have ingredient in any kitchen.
