Cilantro or leaf coriander is a popular herb in Mediterranean, Indian, and Latin American cooking. It is widely used in savory dishes in almost all parts of the world. If allowed to grow to full size, cilantro plants produce coriander seeds. Cilantro and coriander have distinctly different flavors and are used in different ways.
