Spicy Facts
Spice up your taste buds with a variety of  spices in your diet!
Spices not only just excite your taste buds but are composed of phyto-nutrients, essential oils, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. They have been in use since ancient times for their anti-inflammatory and carminative properties. The Arab and European explorers, who spread them from their place of origin to the rest of the world  immensely broadened their use and popularity.

Spices can be categorized botanically according to their source of plant part as follows:

  • Leaves of aromatic plants: Examples include bay leaf, rosemary, thyme, etc.
  • Fruits or seeds: Examples include fennel, nutmeg, coriander, fenugreek, mustard, and black pepper etc.
  • Roots or bulbs: Examples include garlic, turmeric, ginger, etc.
  • Bark: Cinnamon, Cassia, etc.

Culinary uses of spices

Spices can be aromatic or pungent in flavour and peppery or slightly bitter in taste. In order to keep their fragrance and flavour intact, they are generally added in recipes at the end of cooking since prolonged cooking results in evaporation of much of their essential oils.
  • Spices can be used to season soups and barbecue sauces or in pickling and as a main ingredient in a variety of curry powders.
  • Spices along with some seasonal herbs can be used to enhance the flavour and taste of vegetable, chicken, fish and meat dishes.
  • Some spices like cloves, cardamom, coriander and cinnamon can be used to flavour drinks.
