about

Ajwain is a small annual plant in the parsley family, and is closely related to caraway and cumin. For centuries, regions of India practising Ayurvedic medicine have been making a cure-all tonic “omam water” from ajwain seeds. Although the plant is now mainly cultivated for its potent essential oil, ajwain is one of the defining spices of the vegetarian cuisine of the west Indian state of Gujarat.
