How to store Coriander Leaves | Cilantro Leaves

Author Srivalli



  • Trim the root ends which normally gets sold along the green coriander leaves.
  • Soak in a bowl of water and rinse well
  • See the fine dust that is left behind.
  • Let them drain over a colander
  • Then spread over a cloth to make sure the water is completely absorbed. If require, put it under fan.
  • Slowly cover it up like this to absorb whatever water might still be in the leaves.
  • Take the bowl that you want to store the leaves, cut a newspaper to the size of the inner bowl.
  • Place the fresh leaves inside.
  • The stalk can also be stored to be used in Rasams. They add such flavour.
  • Take another paper cutting and cover over the fresh leaves. Refrigerate. There is no need to freeze the leaves.
  • This is after two weeks. Of course I have been using and opening it in between.
  • If required change the paper used to cover the leaves.
