You might love dhaniya, but are you sure you love it as much as chef Ranveer Brar? In a recent post on Instagram, the chef spoke about how he has started a petition on change.org to make dhaniya India's national herb.
Dhaniya, also known as kothmir, is something that accompanies almost every Indian dish as the perfect way to garnish your food. Brar, a few months ago, had jokingly uploaded a picture on his Instagram where he said it was necessary to give the herb its due. The post ended up gaining a lot of attention, which inspired Brar to create an actual petition out of it.
The petition that was started on Thursday now has more than 10,000 signatures. In the description, Brar also writes about how coriander is not just versatile in India, but includes serveral healthy properties. "Not just the flavour, coriander is also a superfood. It is antimicrobial, anti-oxidant, anti-diabetic, anxiolytic, anti-epileptic, anti-depressant, anti-mutagenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-dyslipidemic, anti-hypertensive, neuro-protective and diuretic. It is believed to help control diabetes and decrease cholesterol," reads the petition.
