Coriander leaves or dhaniya patta have a strong odour. They also have aromatic green leaves that are largely used to flavor and garnish food. Belonging to the same family of cilantro, the leaves, dried seeds and powder are widely used in the Indian cuisine. There has always been a debate if coriander is more an herb or spice. They also have a bit of citrus overtone differing from the aroma of the plant’s seeds.
