Family Tip:

  1. Although Indian curries are the first dishes that spring to mind, we use coriander in a huge range of meals.
  2. We love it in bean chilli alongside cumin and turmeric.
  3. It also goes well in a marinade for tofu with lemon zest, garlic and honey served with jasmine brown rice.
