Ajwain (Whole)

$ 4.50
Ajwain (Trachyspermum ammi), also known as ajowan caraway, bishop's weed and carom, has a pungent taste, similar to a blend of anise and thyme. 

Often mistaken for seeds, ajwain are tiny fruits!  Ajwain is mostly commonly used in Indian cooking, where the fruits are tempered in oil for a mild flavor. Some people chew on the seeds for medicinal purposes. The biting flavor can leave the tongue numb! The essential oil of ajwain contains 50% thymol, which is a germicide that's used in toothpaste and perfumery.
