Coriander is a fragrant herb widely used to flavor salads, soups, curries, and other recipes. I love to grow coriander in my small balcony garden. It is easy to grow and maintain this herb in a pot.

In some parts of the world, it is also known as cilantro. Coriander is rich in Vitamin C, folate, manganese, and beta-carotene.

Coriander juice is a wonderful drink to balance three doshas (bioenergies) of our body. Added with a little bit of lemon juice and black salt gives it an incredible taste.
