Nirav Fennel Seeds (Lucknow)
Lucknow fennel seeds (from Lucknow, India) are known as the best quality fennel seeds. These olive green seeds are plumper, brighter and more aromatic than the normal fennel seeds. These greenish-yellow seeds are the dried fruit of a perennial plant. These intense, very aromatic seeds have a sweet, licorice taste. Fennel seeds are used in meat, fish and vegetable curries and go especially well with potatoes and lamb. They are also used in refreshing fennel drinks. These seeds can be eaten plain as a mouth freshener or digestive. They also can be used as an appetite stimulant, sedative or used as an eyewash.
