  • 1 cup dry coriander seeds Dhaniya or Dhania seeds


  • Set a skillet or kadai over medium heat. Add the dry coriander seeds & dry roast them stirring continuosly for 2 min. 
  • Allow the seeds to cool down. Add the roasted Dhaniya seeds into a mixer jar & blend until smooth.
  • Store immediately in a clean, dry air tight jar & keep it in a dry & dark place.



  1. Choose new coriander seeds for best flavors. 
  2. Look for greenish, fragrant seeds. The fresh newer seeds makes incredibly fragrant masala powder.
  3. Roast for not more than 2 mins over medium heat. Stir continuously. Over roasted Dhaniya seeds will ruin the aroma of the Dhania powder.
  4. You may skip dry roasting the dhania seeds in a pan and sun dry them instead for 24 hrs(Indian summer) or 3 days if its not the summer sun. This is how my mom makes the masala powder at home. 
  5. For best flavors store the Dhaniya powder immediately after making a fresh batch. 
  6. Storing suggestion: Air tight jar, in a dark & dry place. The best place is in the pantry cabinet.
  7. The homemade Coriander Powder or Dhaniya powder lasts for 3 months. I don't prefer going beyond the 3 months mark because the aroma slowly fades after 3 months. No, it doesn't go BAD after 3 months, it becomes less potent!
