How to keep Coriander fresh for longer?
It’s really quite frustrating when you just need some chopped coriander / dhaniya leaves to garnish a dish and you open the fridge to find there’s none there or the bunch you purchased is all soggy and moldy. Here’s a guide on what you can do to make sure that fresh coriander lasts for longer in the fridge.

Step 1: Clean the coriander leaves
Take the bunch of coriander (dhaniya) leaves and cut the cord around it. Trim off the roots and throw them. Clean the coriander by putting them in a bowl of tap water or carefully run them under tap water. Make sure that the water flow is light otherwise the coriander leaves will bruise.

Step 2: Dry the coriander leaves
Spread the coriander leaves on a flat surface or a kitchen towel and let them dry completely. This takes around 30 minutes to an hour.

Step 3: Keep coriander in kitchen towels
Divide the coriander into small bunches and then store one portion each in separate kitchen towels.

Step 4: Keep in refrigerator
Keep the coriander packets wrapped in kitchen towel in ziplock covers. Store in the refrigerator. Take out each packet and use it as required.
