Coriander seed is a spice, in garam masala and Indian curries, which often employ the ground fruits in generous amounts together with cumin. It acts as a thickener.

Roasted coriander seeds are eaten as a snack. It is the main ingredient of the two south Indian dishes: sambhar and rasam. Coriander seeds are boiled with water and drunk as indigenous medicine for colds.

Coriander seeds are used in brewing certain styles of beer, particularly some Belgian wheat beers. The coriander seeds are used with orange peel to add a citrus character.
