Ajowan

    • Spices

Ajowan – The seeds of Trachyspermumn ammi, a small annual umbellifer closely related to caraway and cumin and native to India and the Middle East. It has an extremely strong flavour of thyme which, unless used in moderation, will provide a bitter taste. Whole seeds may be bought in Indian specialty shops and should be ground immediately before cooking. It is used in many breads, pastries, and fried snacks throughout India, Pakistan, and as far west as Ethiopia.
