Ajowan seeds are small pale yellowish-brown fruits that are striped and curved, like a tiny version of cumin seeds. It has a bitter and pungent taste, with a flavor similar to anise and oregano. Since they contain thymol, Ajowan seeds smell almost like thyme, but more aromatic and less subtle in taste. Ajowan seeds are rarely eaten raw but often dry-roasted or fried in ghee. This process allows the seeds to develop a more subtle taste, as fresh Ajowan seeds are hot and bitter.
