Star Anise / Illicium anisatum 250gm
Illicium Verum, the Chinese evergreen shrub native to southwest China, produces one of the best spices in the world, Star anise. They are the seed pods from the fruit of this shrub.
Star anise pods are star shaped pods, with about six to eight joints, each containing seeds. Both the seed and pod are used as spices.
Star anise has a distinct and strong flavour of sweet and spice, thus they are used in minimum quantities. It pairs well with onions, poultry, beef dishes etc.
It is the pillar ingredient in Chinese cuisines. It can be used in different curries, dishes like biryani and drinks like chai. Even though the flavour is good it can’t be eaten.
