Discover the Magic of Parsley
Parsley is the world's most popular herb – and it deserves to be, because of its awesome taste and inviting aroma! The name parsley is derived from a Greek work that means ‘rock celery’. It is probably called so because the biennial plant is erect, with a fleshy aromatic tap root and dark shiny leaves which rise from a short stem. Its aroma makes it a popular garnish for soups, pastas and other dishes.
Parsley is healthy and nutritious, and is now available commonly in India. You can find it in the greens and herbs section of the supermarket from where you pick up coriander, curry leaves, mint etc.
Once you bring home your parsley, take a few minutes to prepare and store it. Remove the wilted leaves, if any. Air it on a kitchen towel for a few minutes and then store in the refrigerator in a plastic bag. You have to ensure that the parsley is not wet before placing it in the bag, because wetness causes the parsley to spoil very fast.
Three types of parsley you will find in stores
Parsley is available in a few variants and you can pick what is best for your recipe and what is convenient for you to store and use. You can buy:
• Fresh Curly parsley
• Fresh Flat parsley
• Dried parsley
You can include parsley in many forms in your food, not only as a garnish or flavouring agent, but also as the main recipe sometimes, like in the case of certain soups and dips.
