Also known as cilantro, coriander is the most common herb used in Thai cooking. The whole plant is used--the root, stem and leaves. The seeds are roasted and then ground in a spice mill and used in curry pastes. Fresh coriander is available from Asian food stores, greengrocers, or in pots from plant nurseries. The leaves are used for their fresh, peppery flavour, and as a garnish. For storage, wash and dry the fresh herbs before placing them in plastic bags in the refrigerator--they will keep for 5-6 days. Dried coriander is not a suitable substitute.
