***Corn starch, maize starch, or corn flour is the starch derived from corn grain. The starch is obtained from the endosperm of the kernel. Corn starch is a common food ingredient, often used to thicken sauces or soups, and to make corn syrup and other sugars

*/*In the US, the leaves and stalks of the plant are referred to as "cilantro," while the seeds are referred to as "coriander." In India, where the herb is extremely popular in cooking, it is referred to as something different-sounding altogether—"dhania
