The Indian Caraway is nowadays widely spread. It is not only cultivated in India, but also in Egypt and Iran.
Ajwain is pounded or roasted in a pan before use. While roasting, it unfolds a burning, aromatic smelling perfume, which tastes of thyme.
Ajwain should be used sparingly in dishes, otherwise the food may become too bitter.
Ajwain pairs well with fish and potatoes.
