Type Herb
Use Boil

Ajowan seed (also known as carom seed) is native to southern India and is used commonly throughout southern Asia and the Middle East. It smells and tastes a lot like very strong thyme, though slightly more peppery and with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Dry roasting Ajowan or frying it in oil mellows the flavour and brings out a caraway taste.
