Unit price per
This "tonkatsu" eggplant salad gets a flavour lift from the celery seed salt. Known in Bengal as radhuni, it plays an often understated role in complex flavour combinations.
about the spice
Celery seeds are not from the same plant as the regular cultivated, cooking celery stalks; rather they come from wild celery having more in common with parsley. Traditionally used as celery salt in Bloody Mary cocktail or as tempering in Bengali vegetarian cuisine, celery seeds can add quite a punch with their strong herbaceous, earthy flavor.

what you can cook with it
As noted before, celery seeds go well with a range of recipes. You can spice up your beverages or fish soups or add it your egg salad. However, use it prudently and as seasoning, since celery seeds can be overpowering. We like to mix and match to have a spice blend that plays with the earthy, herby and woody flavor of celery seeds.
