Announcing Herb Mania: Coriander/Cilantro

'Herb Mania' is an event started by lovely Dee of Ammalu's kitchen, to celebrate the freshness of our dear herbs; to let the world know that 'herbs' can be used beyond mere garnishing.

....and I have the opportunity to host this month's edition. Thanks Dee.

Coriandrum Sativum, widely known as 'Coriander' is a herb mostly used in Asian, Middle-eastern and Latin American cooking. Its commonly referred as 'Cilantro' in United States and Canada, deriving its name from a Spanish root word. This herb is so versatile and has been used for centuries in cuisines in many parts of the world.

Lets celebrate the goodness of this bright green herb all this month...:)
