We pickled some eggs in a shiuli phool brine. The result was gently sweet, pine-y flavoured eggs with a brilliant yellow hue.

 

about

Shiuli phool, Parijat or night-flowering jasmine has been an important cultural marker in regional India. In parts of Eastern India, it has been a crucial part of understated culinary genius. The slightly astringent, soft aromatic fresh flower is used in vegetable stir-fries or in flavouring rice. The leaves are also eaten, either deep-fried in batter or crushed for its juice. The antioxidant rich plant has been a part of folk remedies as well.

what you can cook with it

Traditionally, dried shiuli flower is used to impart a lovely golden-yellow colour to cooked food. You can add them in vegetable stir-fries, brew them in a herbal spiced-tea or use them in a pickle brine for an unusually floral-delicious flavour profile.
