Water dropwort

Minari 미나리

water dropwort

Water dropwort has crisp stems and leafy tops and an herbal flavor; it’s sold in the vegetable section of Korean grocery stores. Fresh minari is not always available, so when I see it, I buy it straight away. It wilts quickly, so be sure to use it within a few days.


minari (water drop wort: 미나리)

Wrap the minari in a sheet of newspaper or paper towels, put it in a plastic bag, and keep it in the refrigerator until ready to use.

    Hi guys. If you’re from Malaysia or Singapore, water dropwort is called daun selom here, you can easily get it at the morning market. In Indonesia I believe it’s called tespong. Hope that helps

    Hi maangchi,

    I am wondering it Chinese celery is the same thing or can be used as a sub in the spicy fish and seafood soup you have made. I have not been able to find this water dropwort. Thank you so much!

    Hi Maangchi,

    I don’t think so. Chinese parseley and minari are different. I think you can find “water dropwort”(minari) at a Korean grocery store.

    Hi Maangchi,

    I wanted to make Spicy Fish soup and wonder whether Minari refers to Chinese Parsley? Is it a very fragrant plant used widely by Vietnamese?
