How about knowing something regarding spices we use -

Coriander -



There are two distinct morphological types, one erect and tall with a comparatively stronger main shoot and the other bushy with a relatively weaker main shoot and longer spreading branches.



Origin and Distribution
It is a native of Mediterranean and commercially produced in India, Morocco, Russia, East European countries, France, Central America, Mexico, and USA. Coriander is a tropical crop and can be successfully cultivated as a rabi season crop in an area free from severe frost during February when the crop flowers and sets its seeds.

Uses
The young plant is used for flavouring and garnishing curries and soups. The fruits (seeds) are widely used as condiments with or without roasting in the preparation of curry powders, sausages and seasonings. It is an important ingredient in the manufacture of food flavourings, in bakery products, meat products, soda & syrups, puddings, candy preserves and liquors.
In medicines it is used as a carminative, refrigerant, diuretic, and aphrodisiac. In household medicines, it is used against seasonal fever, stomach disorders, and nausea. Coriander oil and oleoresins are primarily used in seasonings for sausages and other meat products.

Coriander can be taken as juice, in medicinal tea, or can be used for garnishing dishes and food; it remains a strong source of vital nutrients in any way and medium. The beautiful green leaves of coriander just don’t bring aroma to the dishes, but also bring good health.

sorry friends, posted the material hurriedly without editing as we used to type and keep them after hearing from our elders and storing them, being in a joint family (both in maternal and paternal sides) we thought it will be useful in latter days.

if anyone can explain as to how to edit the post i will do it

Dear friend,

The editing option will be available only for half an hour. Then it'll expire. Now I have edited it and removed unwanted characters.
