Coriander grows wild in South East Europe and had been cultivated in Egypt, India and China for thousands of years. It is mentioned in Sanskrit text and the Bible Spanish conquistadors introduced it to Mexico and Peru where it now commonly paired with chilies in the local cuisine. It has since become very popular in the Southwest and Western part of the United States as well as in most metropolitan areas. They have not gained in popularity in Europe as it has in many other parts of the world.
Cilantro Flakes are found in many Asian foods, in Mexican cooking such as salsa or guacamole, tacos, chilies, salads and meats.
