    This is how I do it and the coriander stays green and fresh for atleast a week or even more.

    Right after I come home from grocery shopping I separate them from the bundle and wash them. I stack them all together and snip the ends off like an inch or so. Then I fill a small jar with water and set them upright (like a bouquet) and cover them with a plastic wrap and set it in the door of the fridge. This way the greens will get water and because of the plastic wrap they won't get dried out in the fridge.

    Should try this tip out, Raj! I am storing coriander, curry leaves (even mint) in an air-tight plastic box covering the base and top with tissue paper. First time the curry leaves have remained fresh and green for over 2 weeks.

    This works:

    Chop the roots of the coriander, sqeeze lemon juice near the root ends and wrap the bunch in a tissue paper and put it in the fridge... Mine stays for weeks totally green.

    I put them in the freezer. It has the fresh smell for months also. When you want to use it take as much as you want and put the rest imd back in the freezer to avoid black rotten leaes.
