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."View full product details
