24 Mantra Organic Ajwain Seeds Jar, 8 oz
The small fruit pods are pale brown and have an oval shape, resembling caraway and cumin. It is often called "carom seeds" or "bishop's weed." It has a bitter and pungent taste, with a flavor similar to anise and oregano. A spice that every Indian household is all too familiar with and without which every dal tadka is incomplete, ajwain is derived from a herb plant that originated in our very own country. Ajwain seeds vary from being slightly olive green to brown in color.
The seeds have a bitter and pungent flavor, somewhat like oregano, and because of its strong aromatic essence, it is often added to curries and pickles. The seeds smell almost like thyme because it also contains thymol, but is more aromatic and less subtle in taste, as well as slightly bitter and pungent. Even a small amount of ajwain seeds tend to dominate the flavor of a dish.
