In Turkey fresh coriander is used only in the cuisine of the Çerkez (Circassians). With the addition of coconut, called hindustan cevizi (meaning ‗Indian walnut‘), the flavours evoke tastes associated with India. This dish can he made with rice or bulgur, and makes a refreshing accompaniment to the numerous köfte, kehah and grilled fish dishes.
