A question about a recipe: Best Ever Turkey Chili

B95c91ae 725b 4c67 bb34 7f839f9c8cb7  2014 0930 best ever turkey chili 146

I have a question about the recipe "Best Ever Turkey Chili" from kmartinelli. Dried coriander? does this mean dried, ground seed (i.e. powder) or actual dried coriander leaves (which I have not seen often...I may sub some fresh cilantro in that case). Thanks!

Coriander is the dried seed of the cilantro plant. You will find it in the spice aisle. To me, it tastes nothing like cilantro.

Without seeing the recipe, and making chili regularly, I'd guess the cook meant coriander that you buy already dried and ground, in package or in bulk. I agree with Susan W that dried and fresh are nothing alike. I add chopped, fresh coriander at the end.

When I made this, I added dried coriander to the spice blend before simmering, but then garnished with chopped fresh cilantro before serving. I find that cooking with fresh cilantro dilutes its flavor, so decided not to add it until the end. I thought that this was a delicious recipe -- hope that you enjoy it!
