6 Best Substitutes for Coriander

Cooking with a bare pantry? Here are the best substitutes for coriander seed and cilantro that you can use in a pinch.

1. Best Choice: Caraway

It’s more nutty than earthy and has a bit of bitterness mixed into its sweetness.

2. Cumin

It has an earthy, slightly sweet flavor, but is warmer and sharper than coriander and caraway.

3. Oregano

It has a taste that is simultaneously sweet and spicy with highly aromatic undertones.

These seeds have a lively, sweet, and licorice taste. But when mixed with the sharper flavors of cumin, fennel seed help add the missing floral characteristics of its distant cousin.

4. Fennel

5. Garam Masala

It contains a variety of whole, toasted spices that have been ground down. Most commonly, garam consists of cinnamon, peppercorns, mace, cardamom, cumin, and coriander.
