A wonderful seed that adds a perky freshness to carbohydrates. Ajwain is related to fennel, caraway, cumin etc., but it is much smaller than these. 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.
 Here are a few suggestions how to use organic ajwain in cooking:
·          Usage is mainly for potatoes and lentils.
·          It is also very good for fish.
·          Good in any root vegetable dish.
·          Used in curry powder specifically for vegetables and lentils
·          Used in fried Indian fritters/apetizers called bhajia
·          To flavor Indian breads like parantha and pooris and fried snacks
Hint: Ajwain, often confused with lovage, but is different.   It is rearely used with meats.

Our organic spices are pure, all natural spices and seasonings and fair trade spices. Our dedication to sustainable sourcing insures you get ethical clean spices.

Using our in-house kitchen we make all our blends in Minneapolis. We grind the spices that need to be ground, roast the ones that need to be roasted and keep some spices whole that are traditionally whole in ethnic blends. Did you know that cultures did not grind all their spices and most cultures will use both whole and ground spices in their blends?

This ensures that you get the best flavor, color, aroma, and taste.

We're committed to providing pure organic seasonings that taste great and promote a healthy planet. We're proud to offer the largest selection of organic ethnic spices and spice blends available.
