Often you will find Asian, Indian and Mexican recipes that call for coriander and cilantro.
The recipes may call for cilantro and coriander interchangeably, both names can be used for the leaves of the plant.
Coriander seed is also common in these recipes.
Coriander and coriander seed are both easy to grow. Just plant seeds or several plants you buy at your local nursery in a sunny spot in the garden and keep watered and you will have a crop for all your Asian, Mexican and Indian dishes. To grow coriander seed you just let the plants flower and produce seeds. I let them dry partially on the plant like the seed head above and then harvest by cutting the plants and popping the seeds off over a bowl. They may need to dry a bit more so I place the seeds in the sun outside to dry for several hours.
Some of my favorite recipes using these herbs are Indian or Mexican dishes, here are a few pictures of some of my favorites.
