Ajwain Powder

Ajwain Powder

Derived from the Ajwain seed, Ajwain powder's taste is slightly more bitter but almost identical to that of time Thyme. Its pungency is reminiscent of Oregano, with a kick that could make you think its Cumin, and an pleasant aftertaste with anise-like qualities.

One teaspoon usually does it for a big pot of food, as a little goes a long way.  Ajwain powder is commonly used in Indian, Pakistani, and Middle Eastern cooking for curries, meat and rice dishes, breads, and generously flavoring snacks.
