Ingredient: Ajwain


Interesting Facts

  • is the small seed-like fruit similar to that of the bishop’s weed (Ammi majus) plant, egg-shaped and grayish in color
  • smells almost exactly like thyme because it also contains thymol, but is more aromatic and less subtle in taste, as well as slightly bitter and pungent.
  • In Indian cuisine, ajwain is almost never used raw, but either dry-roasted or fried in ghee or oil. This develops a much more subtle and complex aroma, somewhat similar to caraway but “brighter”.
