Tips to Make Perfect Coriander Powder

  • Try to use good-quality coriander seeds.
  • Dry roast them on medium-low heat by stirring at regular intervals to avoid burning and to bring out the best flavors.
  • Make sure to cool the roasted coriander seeds completely before grinding else seeds will release moisture and reduce the shelf life.
  • Store ground coriander powder in a clean, dry and airtight glass container for longer shelf life.
