Really didnt know to use coriander seeds until I got them and was looking through recipes and found one that I thought sounded really good. So I tried the recipe Belarussian Carrot Salad
450g (1 pound) carrots, peeled and grated
2 tsp coriander seeds, roasted and crushed lightly
30ml neutral flavoured oil
1 small onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
30ml cider vinegar, or to taste (I like my with a little more, go by the sweetness of the carrots)
1 tsp salt
Place carrot in a bowl, pour over the marinade and mix so everything is well coated. Cover, set aside for at least 3 hours, or preferably, overnight. If the carrots are very fresh, they develop too much juice, which should be poured away.
Heat the oil a in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry until golden. Allow to cool a little, then drain the oil through a sieve on to the carrots and discard the onion. Now add the coriander seeds to the carrots, along with the garlic and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Give a good stir before serving.
Covered, this salad will keep for a couple of days in the fridge.
Serves 4-6 as a side dish.
Turns out that I really do like coriander seeds. I really enjoyed fixing the recipe and the taste was excellent.
