Organic ajwain, also known as bishop's weed, bishop seeds, or carom, is an herb commonly used in Indian cuisine. Although ajwain is rarely used raw, when dry-roasted or fried in ghee or oil, it develops a subtle, complex aroma and flavor, similar to that of caraway or thyme, though notably brighter. In fact, bishop seeds are so powerfully aromatic that only a slight amount is necessary to transform a dish with its exceptional flavor. While ajwain can be used to add flavor to a wide variety of dishes, it is frequently used to prepare a paratha, or traditional Indian pan fried flatbread, called "ajwain ka parantha."
Ajwain offers numerous health benefits, and as a digestive aid, has traditionally been used to relieve abdominal discomfort related to indigestion. Additionally, ajwain seeds have historically been used to relieve colic and improve appetite in babies and young children; for this use, the seeds are first ground up and soaked in milk to soften.
