  • 250 gms coriander seeds/dhania seeds
  • wok to roast the seeds


How to buy the seeds:

  • Buy the coriander seeds from a good store and of a good brand. Make sure it has no stones and try to hand pick if any stones are spotted.

Dry roasting:

  • Take a non stick pan, heat it.
  • Add the dhania seeds and dry roast them for few minutes on low flame.
  • Keep stirring while roasting and do not dry roast on high flame.
  • When the seeds are roasted well, a pleasant and aromatic fragrance comes out and that is when we come to know the seeds are dry roasted well.
  • It takes about 4-5 minutes if we roast them on a very low flame for them to dry roast well.
  • Once they are done, immediately switch off the flame.
  • Allow the seeds to cool down.
  • Take a blending jar, add the dry roasted seeds into the jar, blend them very finely.
  • Take an air tight container.
  • Make sure the container is totally dry and not even moist.
  • Transfer the coriander seeds powder into an air tight container.
  • Close the lid.
  • Store them in your kitchen shelves.
  • It is ready to be used in all the curries or gravies.


1. Always make the powder at home after roasting.
2. Never make the powder without dry roasting as it tastes very raw and not suitable to be added in curries.
3. No need of adding any preservatives and it lasts longer since we have dry roasted it and blended.
