Carried on to make flavouring (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

coriander

Here is my best explanation:

'flavouring' is the definition.

(coriander is a kind of flavouring)

'carried on to make' is the subsidiary indication.

'to make' indicates anagramming the letters.

'carried'+'on'='carriedon'

'carriedon' with letters rearranged gives 'coriander'.

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for coriander that I've seen before include "Parsley-like herb used in cooking", "spice", "Spice", "Aromatic herb", "An aromatic seed; carried on (anag.)", "Plant with spicy fruit", "plant", "Culinary herb", "Herb used with carrot for soup" and "leaves for cooking".)
