These intensely fruity-citrusy peppercorns are surprisingly fresh and subtly bitter. Traditionally used in the Eastern Himalayan and Nepalese cuisine in various chutneys and dry rubs, a pinch of lightly crushed Sil-Timur is enough to build complexity in any dish.

 

about the spice

Native to Nepal, Sil-Timur is part of the culinary culture of Eastern Himalayan region. Not generally known or used outside the region, these dried berries are delightfully citrusy lending an almost heady candied orange-lemon flavour to dishes. The berries together with the leaves are also used in regional folk medicinal recipes.

 

flavour fruity, aromatic
aroma sharp, citrusy

what you can cook with it
