Botanical name: Trachysoermum copticum

We source Organic Ajwain from India and pack it in Biodegradable, resealable, stand up paper bags.

Ajwain, also known as Carom Seed, Bishop’s Weed or Ajowan, is native to the Asian continent. It is used in South Asian, Ethiopian, Iranian and European cuisines. Ajwain is grayish-green in colour, curved with stripes and a fine silk stalk attached. It is hot and bitter in taste and strong Thyme-like flavour with Cumin undertones and a pleasant aftertaste.

Ajwain works well with starchy foods including breads like ciabatta and flat bread. It also works well with chickpea flour, green beans, legumes, lentil stews, pastries, root vegetables and fish. The seeds are often crushed by rubbing between palms or mortar and pestle before cooking to release its essential oils and used sparingly due to its bold and overpowering flavour that mellows down with cooking.

Ajwain pairs well with Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cumin, Fennel Seed, Ground Cloves, Garlic, Pepper and Turmeric.
