Black Mustard Seeds
Black Mustard Seed is also called Indian mustard. Its main ingredient is Black Mustard Seed itself as it produces a delightful tang and flavor with quite powerful deep and sharp hotness. Use Black Mustard Seed in Indian cooking, meat and fish to get an aromatic tangy taste.
- Tadka or Tempering is a cooking method in which cooking oil is heated till very hot and whole spices are added to it and fried. This oil and spice mix is then added as a final touch or garnish to the dish. In Indian cooking, Rai/ Sarson is often part of the Tadka in a dish. The flavor of mustard seeds adds nice and mild aroma.
- In India, the seeds are often toasted until they split open much like popcorn does. Beware overcooking the seeds as they will burn and turn bitter.
- Mustard Seed's hot and spicy flavor enhances meats, fish, fowl, sauces, and salad dressings. Whole Mustard Seed may be used in pickling or in boiling vegetables such as cabbage or sauerkraut. Brown Mustard Seeds are an important flavoring in Indian dishes
- The brown /black mustard seeds are commonly used as dried spices, especially in South Indian cooking where they are known as rai.
- The seeds are fried in hot ghee or oil till they pop, sputter and turn gray when they release their nutty, pungent flavor. They are usually fried with other fresh or dried spices like cumin, asafetida, chilies and turmeric before they are added to other Indian food like to dals, curries or vegetable dishes.
- Brown Mustard seeds are also used as a garnishing spice when they are dry roasted or sautéed in oil with whole red chilies and fresh coconut and then sprinkled on steamed vegetables or on dal or lentils.
- A pinch of mustard seeds certainly enhances salad dressings and can be used in all foods needing a bit of flavor. In Indian food, mustard seeds are often used to complement potato, cabbage and green beans.
