This strong-flavored herb is used many South Asian foods (particularly chutneys), in Chinese dishes and in Mexican dishes, particularly in salsa and guacamole and as a garnish. As heat diminishes their flavor quickly, coriander leaves are often used raw or added to the dish immediately before serving. Cilantro comes from the same plant as the spice coriander, which is made from the seeds.
