Coriander paste is used as a base for making chutmeys, dips, marinades etc. To make the paste, ensure that you clean the coriander bunch well and discard the roots. Chop and grind along with spices as required. Thai cuisine uses a combination of Thai peppers, lime and coriander to be blended into a paste which can be then used as a marinade for chicken, sea food etc. In India, this paste is combined with cumin seeds, peanuts etc to make chutneys which go well with fried snacks like samosas, vadas as well as dosa, idli, sandwiches etc. Always store coriander paste under refrigerated conditions..
