The fennel in this recipe is from a recipe I found in a book called Vegetarian Cooking Made with Fennel. I never thought that I would have the opportunity to cook with this ingredient, but I do. This recipe will change the life of your taste buds.
I thought I would never have the chance to cook with fennel. It’s a root, which has a very distinctive fennel taste. I thought fennel was only used in traditional Indian dishes such as idli and curries, and I had hoped to try it in a vegetable dish. But this recipe takes fennel from the vegetable world and turns it into a tasty, spicy vegetable.
Fennel is the root of the fennel plant (Cichorium intybus). It is a very popular herb and used widely in many dishes, but I have never had the chance to really cook with it. With a little research I found it is actually one of the most aromatic and flavorful herbs, with a flavor that is similar to that of oregano.
I had forgotten that this herb is in season and that you can pick it early in the season. It is typically harvested in summer for use in curries and as a garnish, though I have heard that it is sometimes used as an ingredient in Indian dishes. It is also a member of the Lamiaceae family, which includes chickpea and lentil.
If you haven’t already read my fennel article, you should definitely do so. I have given you a good taste of the flavor profile of this herb and a great idea of the use of it in Indian cuisine.
Fennel is a member of the same family as the parsley family (which includes parsley, savory, dill, and cilantro) and the dill family (which includes dill weed and dandelion). It is a member of the Lamiaceae family and is found throughout India. Parsley is found throughout tropical America, and savory is common in the southern US.
That’s interesting because we don’t generally get that many people who are talking about fennel in India. It’s not a popular variety of herbs in food, and many people don’t know it exists.Fennel is a leafy vegetable that is found in the summer months and is often used to make a refreshing herbal tea. Like parsley, fennel is a member of the Lamiaceae family which includes parsley, savory, dill, and cilantro.
Here’s where we get to the interesting part! Fennel is traditionally used by the Parsis in India as a tea and for flavoring their dishes. This tea is more popular than ever, and many people are now looking for ways to make it even more flavorful. People have been growing fennel bulbs in the backyard for a long time, but most Americans know them as cilantro. It is actually one of the most popular and highly recognized herbs in the US.
