  2. Hi,
    I am an indian trying to learn indian cooking..
    My Mom always used to add coriander in any curry that she would make. I don’t understand the role of it – I mean, I tried tasting it, but it didn’t have any particular taste like garam masala etc. Is it only used for the texture of the curry or only aroma?

    As an aside, I am trying to make bhindi (okra). Do we add coriander in it?
