Similar to cumin seeds in appearance, ajwain seeds are grayish-green in color, with stripes and atiny stalk attached to it. Ajwain adds a perky freshness to lentils. When kept in its raw state, ajwain is hot and quite bitter. When cooked in food,the flavor balances out and becomes enjoyable.The seed has a similar size and shape like celery seeds. The taste is strong but has a certain freshness to it. Carom, a seed high in thymol (found in thyme), is popular in some Indian dal dishes and in breads and potatoes where it is used as a spice very much like cumin. It is rarley used with meats.

Integral to cooking year round, spices are supremely important to have in your pantry. It's impossible to imagine many dishes without their distinctive spices and seasonings. Whether you would like your dish flavored bold or subtle, spices add a taste dimension to meals that is simply irresistible.

Spices enhance the natural properties of foods and are an important part of the complex and magical flavors of ethnic cuisines. Spices are high in flavor yet low in fat, calories and sodium offer the opportunity to explore new tastes.
