Mum’s garden always has coriander

It’s a constant in her garden and always has been along with chillies.  Its one of those comforting plants to see in the vegie patch.    

Easy and quick to grow, the herbie flavour of coriander combined with chillies, tomatoes and seasoning has the ability to add drama and pazzaz to almost any Indian dish.  Rice and dahl, pakoras, samosa, yoghurt and rice, khitchri, idli and dosa, any curry and even pappadums.

Every part of this fragrant herb is used, from its roots to eventually when it seeds.   The leaves (herb) are known as Cilantro whilst the seeds (spice) are called Coriander.  True to its meaning (Coriander means Hidden Wisdom) this plant has a lot to teach us about life.  Balance and harmony, ups and downs and of course the simplicity of life.  If only we could be like a coriander plant, growing tall with nourishment and water, bowing our heads in the heat of the summer sun, giving with every part of our being,  maybe we too could lift up the lives of those around us just as this chutney does being the sidekick to any dish, but is it just a sidekick or the star of the show??

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo
    News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem
    to get there! Many thanks

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent
    blog!

    This design is wicked! You most certainly
    know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit
    and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!
