Guest hosting "Herbs and Flowers in my Platter" - Coriander leaves/Cilantro

This is my first time hosting an event and I would like to thank PJ of Seduce Your Tastebuds to let me guest host her event. PJ has a wide variety of healthy recipes collection and almost everything from each category. Be it cereals/vegetables/fruits, she would definitely have cooked a dish from each of the items.
The chosen herb for this month is Coriander Leaves/Cilantro. This is a common herb used in South-Asian, Latin-American and Mediterranean cuisine alike. These are known by the common names like Coriander leaves, Cilantro or Chinese Parsley. 
So dear friends are you ready to cook with Coriander/Cilantro and send me your culinary creations...


Here are the guidelines.
  1. Cook and blog about any dish which features 'Coriander Leaves/Cilantro'. No Beef/Pork/Alcohol please.
  2. The selected herb has to be the star or one of the key ingredients in the dish.
  3. Though this series is based on the culinary uses, you can also write about some interesting facts on cilantro and other medicinal/cosmetic uses.
  4. Please add this announcement link, original announcement page by PJ, logo to your post. It helps spread the word.
  5. Send in as many entries as you could. Archived entries are also accepted but please re-post with this event announcement and logo.
  6. The last date for the entries is April 15th 2011.
  7. Send me the following details with email subject as "Herbs & Flowers - Coriander" to krithiskitchen[at]gmail[dot]com.
    1. Your name and 
    2. Blog Name
