A fragrance reminiscent of thyme, essential from the simplest Indian dishes to the most complex masalas.
The adjwain is a plant native to the Indian subcontinent, which is also cultivated in several countries of the Middle East. Its seeds, similar in appearance to celery seeds, have a powerful, almost peppery fragrance, resembling that of thyme. They also contain one of the essential oils of thyme, thymol. In Indian cuisine, it flavors vegetables, browned in ghee with onions and mustard. It is used most of the time whole, to give dishes not only a particular flavor, but also a crunchy side. Adjwain is a good substitute for thyme, but is used in smaller quantities.
