Coriander-Know Your Herbs and Spices

Coriander is a popular herb used by many cultures. More about fresh coriander, better known as cilantro can be found here.
Ground coriander comes from the plant’s seeds. These seeds have a slight citrus taste with a touch of cumin. Coriander is a component in curry powder. As part of curry powder or alone, it is a popular spice staple in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
Whole coriander seeds work well in soups and pickled.

Here’s a recipe for Curried Chicken Burgers

adapted from Soni’s Foods

Curried Chicken Burger

Burger Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 Tablesoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 reaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  • Salt-to taste
  • Oil or cooking spray

Mix together the burger ingredients and form into patties.
Preheat your grill or griddle to medium heat.
Lightly oil the grill grate and grill the burgers about 5-6 minutes on each side until fully cooked.
Since I did this indoors in January, I seared the burgers and finished them off in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Lightly grill the buns if you desire.
Assemble the burger. I added lettuce and tomato then placed the burger!

  • Spices are always an interesting topic. Maria (my Libaliano partner) and I always like to discuss herbs and spices. She, being Italian, uses mostly herbs for flavour. Me, being Lebanese, love to use spices. I particularly love coriander although it does not feature prominently in Lebanese cuisine.
    These curried chicken burgers are appetising will definitely try them this week.
