Rau Ram (Vietnamese mint)

Rau ram, also known as Vietnamese Coriander or Vietnamese mint is well known in Vietnamese cooking. Often pronounced as ‘zow-zam’, it is used as a cilantro substitute. Rau ram can often be substituted for either cilantro or mint. In Malaysia, the plant is known as laksa and often served there as a condiment, along with basil.

The plant prefers shade or partial sun and like mint, is water loving. Plants can be propagated through its nodes, by cuttings.
