Ajwain seeds might look very similar to cumin or fennel seeds but they have a pungency and a slight bitterness. The seeds are fragrant and smell like thyme but they taste a bit like star anise or oregano. Ajwain seeds are used in a variety of Indian curries and snacks. Use TRS Ajwain Seeds to add tadka to your dish or add it at the end to balance out the rich flavours of the curry.
