How much dried Coriander would you substitute for 1 quarter of a cup fresh coriander?
Coriander is an herb that has two primary forms: leaves and fruit. The leaves are typically sold as an herb called cilantro in the United States and the fruit is typically sold as whole coriander seeds or ground coriander. The flavor of the leaves is very different than the flavor of the fruit and I would not recommend substituting one for the other. Cilantro is typically used in Mexican cuisine and Coriander is typically used in Indian cuisine. It is one of the ingredients in garam masala for example. If you can't find fresh cilantro, you could substitute parsley. The flavor would not be the same but it is a better choice than using ground coriander seeds.

What doesOne tbs fresh coriander equals how much dried coriander?
One tbsp of fresh coriander would be one teaspoon of dried and vice-versa. That is a three to one ratio. This formula works for all herbs. Just remember 1tbsp fresh = 1 tsp. dried. Packaged dried herbs are stronger than fresh herbs, but lose their potency as they age. If the container is new then use a bit more sparingly. Fresh herbs are the way to go to get the best results.
