The name coriander derives from French "coriandre" which comes from Latin “Coriandrum” in turn from Greek. The name Coriandrum used by Pliny, is derived from koros, (a bug), in reference to the foetid smell of the leaves.Coriander is mentioned in Holy Bible and has been known and acknowledged since Middle Ages. Native to the Mediterranean and the Middle East is found in most of the parts of India almost 7000 years ago. Coriander was originally introduced from the East, being one of the herbs brought to Britain by the Romans. As an aromatic stimulant and spice, it has been cultivated and used from very ancient times. It was employed by Hippocrates and other Greek physicians. The fresh leaves are an essential ingredient in many Vietnamese foods, Asian chutneys and Mexican salsas and guacamole. In the northern countries of Europe, the seeds are sometimes mixed with bread, but the chief consumption of Coriander seed in this country is in flavouring certain alcoholic liquors, for which purpose it is largely grown in Essex. Distillers of gin make use of it, and veterinary surgeons employ it as a drug for cattle and horses.
The fruit is the only part of the plant that seems to have any medical or dietetical reputation.Chopped coriander leaves are also used as a garnish on cooked dishes such as dal and many curries. As heat diminishes their flavour quickly, coriander leaves are often used raw or added to the dish right before serving. Known as Cilantro refers to the leaves and coriander refers to its seeds. Coriander is known as a warm citrusy flavour with a hint of sage, while cilantro flavours mostly like milder and more earthy. This ageless condiment has taken place in the south-east Asian food since a very long. Its delicate young leaves, Cilantro have been used in Latin-American, Indian and Chinese dishes. The Iranian folk medicines use coriander for the digestive issues. The essential oil of coriander is used in aches and pain due to arthritis issues works wonderfully.
