We all are aware of the fact that spices are an integral part of our cuisines. They add colors and flavors which makes our food more attractive and tasty.Although there are many spices that we use on a daily basis but let me grab your attention to a spice named ‘Radhuni Spice'(celery seed).
Radhuni is known by its name ‘Ajmod’ in hindi. The spice is actually the dried fruit of the plant Trachyspermum Roxburgianum. The areas where it is grown are South Asia, Southeast Asia and Indonesia.
Though Radhuni is not so much in use in other parts of India but is used in most of the Bengali cuisines.
.Radhuni smells something like parsley and it’s taste is similar to that of celery. Radhuni gives a strong spicy feeling due to its flavor. Bengali Paanch Phoron is a local mixture of cumin seeds, fennel seeds , fenugreek seeds, kalonji andRadhuni is a must part of it.
Radhuni is used in many Bengali dishes such a ssukto. It also helps in digestion of food to some extent. Buy Radhuni from Panchvaati and make it a part of your spice family.
