Storing Coriander Powder

Ground coriander has less shelf life compared to whole seeds. The powder looses its freshness by passing time.
You can store coriander powder for 2-3 months to retain flavor. Store daniya powder in airtight containers. If you make in bulk, you can store a small portion in pantry and freeze the rest. For longer shelf life store gourd coriander in freezer in small air tight containers.
Always use a clean dry spoon to take the required amount.
