Ajwain Seeds

Ajwain, or Carom Seeds, grow throughout India, so it’s no surprise they’re a staple ingredient in Indian cuisine. Due to the presence of Thymol, you can think of Ajwain as thyme’s edgier cousin. It gives off similar floral notes to thyme, but with a sharper edge like Oregano, a Cumin kick and even slight anise like fennel. It’s this punchy flavour that makes Ajwain such a useful ingredient, but also means it needs to be used sparingly.
