  1. are the 15g of coriander what I would call cilantro leaves? Also, do you happen to know the American equivalents of grams and millilitres? to make your recipes easier for Americans…..If not, I can look it up on google………….Thanks. Everything looks delicious.


    • Hello Jan, yes, coriander is the also called cilantro. It looks like parsley but smells very different – I often got them mixed up at the shops. Google also tells me that 1g (gram) = 1 millilitre. Thanks for your suggestion to make recipes more friendly for the Americans, I will do this from now on. I am not too familiar with the American terms so I will research them. You probably wonder why this recipe is precise on quantity – 16gram / millilitre of cilantor is the recommended portion for a low fodmap diet by Monash University. Have a lovely day & thanks heaps for visiting my blog !
