Coriander root is, unsurprisingly, the root of the coriander herb, which is also known as Chinese parsley and cilantro. The leaves of coriander are commonly used in all sorts of cuisines as are the seeds but the root is not used nearly as much even though it can bring such a wonderful flavour to your cooking. Frozen coriander root is simply the root having been frozen, which makes it easy for you to keep it in your home, preserving the flavour without having to worry about it going off any time soon. What does it Taste Like? Frozen coriander roots have a delightfully aromatic flavour, more so than if you just used the leaves alone. While it has a brilliant flavour on its own, it’s only when the frozen coriander root is cooked that it releases the full body of its flavour into the food, including a small hint of sweetness. Its pungent peppery flavour is unique to coriander root with a mix of earthy undertones and citrusy and spicy flavours. Our frozen coriander roots are taken from the younger plants, which are ideal for cooking because the older the root the more bitter the flavour. Where Can you Buy these Roots? Unfortunately, most coriander roots are unavailable at local supermarkets. But all is not lost. Here at Thai Food Direct, you can have these roots delivered directly to your door, without you needing to go out looking for them in the Asian shops of your local area. We also sell frozen coriander roots, which you can store in the freezer and use when you need; the ideal choice for the busy family. What Dishes do they Work with? Frozen coriander root is a great pair for dishes with coconut milk, tomato paste, ginger, citrus, kaffir leaves, lemongrass and chilli peppers. This means that you’ll want to use it liberally in most curries and pad Thai dishes, both of which can really benefit from the rich, earthy flavours of the frozen coriander root. Because of this, they’re a pretty standard ingredient in most Thai cuisine and you can use them with almost any meat, but they work particularly well with lamb, goat and chicken.
