Kustumburu (कुस्तुम्बुरु) is a Sanskrit word referring to “coriander seed”, an annual herb from the Apiaceae/Umbelliferae (celery/carrot/parsley) family of aromatic plants, and is used throughout Āyurvedic literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā. The official botanical name is Coriandrum sativum and is commonly referred to in English as “Cilantro” or “Chinese parsley” among other nicknames.
This plant (Kustumburu) is also mentioned as a medicine used for the treatment of all major fevers, as described in the Jvaracikitsā (or “the treatment of fever”) which forms the first chapter of the Sanskrit work called Mādhavacikitsā. In this work, the plant is also known as Dhānyaka or Dhāṇyam.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
