Aromatic plant of cilantro

Cilantro is an annual herb in the same family of other aromatic plants such as celery and parsley. The herb is originally from Greece. Other names for cilantro include Mexican or Chinese parsley.

When the plant is harvested green, and the leaves are used, it is called cilantro. When the dried fruits (usually called seeds*) are used, the herb is called coriander.

Cilantro leaves are used as parsley like garnish with a fresh fragrance that is vital in, soups, and meat dishes because these are rich in vitamin A, B2 (riboflavin), C and dietary fiber.

The seeds, which are referred to as coriander, have a distinct flavor similar to orange and are used in pastries, sausage, and cooked fruit, and as an important ingredient in pickling spice and curry powder.
