This past week, my feet and ankles started swelling because of water retention and so I fell back on this tried-and-tested home remedy of Coriander Seeds Water (Coriander Seed Tea) that helps in reducing body heat and water retention.

As with many Indian homes, traditional home remedies is what I first use as a remedy to minor ailments or discomforts. I also try to make these a part of my routine so as to keep healthy. This Coriander Seeds Water is one such remedy that is a part of my everyday life.

Coriander Seeds or Sabut Dhania are nutrient-rich and help in:

  • aiding digestion and combating stomach ailments
  • regulating blood sugar and cholestrol
  • improving skin and hair
  • improving kidney function
  • reducing body heat
  • reducing water retention
  • aiding weight-loss

All you need to make this Coriander Seed Tea is to steep some coriander seeds (sabut dhania) in warm water for a couple of hours (or overnight) and then drink it in small batches over the next 2 hours. So what I do is add 2 tbsp of the seeds in 1 litre of lukewarm water.

Alternatively, you can also steeps the seeds in boiling water for 15 to 30 minutes and then drink the water.

On days that are very hot, I may make two batches of this water. When I am at work, I use a green tea steeper to make this water.

In hot weather, do not keep the seeds soaked in water for very long (more than 4 hours) because the water turns sour or even rancid. What I do is soak the seeds in water as soon as I get up and then use it after 2 to 3 hours.
