BISHOP’S WEED WHOLE (AJWAIN)
“Mewa Basket Ajwain, a small oval-shaped aromatic seed, may taste bitter or pungent in the first go but work its magic slowly and steadily. The leaves come from the Ajwain plan, often called the “Indian Borage”.They are usually sold whole. The seeds are often chewed for medicinal value, tasting bitingly hot and bitter, leaving the tongue numb. Cooking ajwain mellows it somewhat; when crushed, they have a solid and distinctive thyme-like fragrance.
“The seeds work great as a seasoning and add a pleasing flavour to several foods. Ajwain seeds are used to temper dals, pakoras, bread, etc. You can also boil two teaspoons of roasted ajwain seeds in water and drink it after straining. Mewa Basket’s Ayurvedic bishop weed can add a subtle taste to your Indian dishes and supplements like chutney and dips. ”
