Homemade Coriander Powder with a Twist | Dhania Powder

Sharing is caring!

You must be like why is she sharing a recipe for Coriander Powder. All we need to do is roast and grind the coriander seeds. Yes and no. My recipe for Homemade Coriander powder has a twist in it. It is just not the coriander seeds but a mix of few more spices to enhance the flavour as well as the nutrient content of the masala.

This is my mom’s recipe and till date I always use this. I never liked store bought coriander powder. It lacks the texture from the one prepared at home. I have used the store bought in one or two dishes and it never tasted the same. It really lacks the flavour. Even a powder with simple coriander seeds I would say best is to make it at home.

So what do I add in this Homemade Coriander Powder

This Coriander Powder has a blend of Coriander seeds, cloves, cinnamon, peppercorns and curry leaves. All this different spices add the needed taste as well increase the nutrient content of this. For eg. Curry leaves or kadi patta has a list of benefits aligned to it. It helps in digestion, weight loss, keeps diabetes under check, hair repair etc. etc. But we do not consume it, we remove it from the vegetables we add. So when added in a masala, it is well hidden and consumed too.

Similarly adding of peppercorns to this coriander powder masala adds the taste as well as makes it slightly spicier than the regular one. Cinnamon and clove again adds to this, plus adds a wonderful aroma. So whenever I make a batch of Coriander powder I always add the spices to get a tastier, spicer and flavourful masala.


Texture of Coriander Powder

I like my coriander powder with coarse texture and hence I do not grind it very finely. You can make the powder as per your liking.

My mom also makes it in quite similar way. She also adds cumin to it. Store bought powder is just plain coriander and lacks flavor.

Even I hate the store bought coriander powder. It lacks the flavor. Your version with all the spices and curry leaves look amazing.

This is surely extra flavorful and makes a great addition to any curry, I bet.

Now that is very interesting! I am intrigued by the addition of those spices and especially the curry leaves, surely will add an interesting dimension to an otherwise usual coriander powder...
