Announcing Cooking With Seeds-Fennel Seeds

Successfully my event calling for Cooking With Seeds going to enter its 8th announcement, actually Silpa of Anita's Kitchen wanted to host this month's event but unfortunately its seems she was bit busy with her new job, even i mailed her few days back asking about this month's event, till now i didnt get any mails from her, so thought of hosting this month's theme by myself, eventhough i'll be in break for few days, am happy to host this event after a long..So friends this month's seeds is going to be fennel seeds..

Fennel Seeds (Sauf) are very effective for digestive problems. These seeds can be chewed upon or had as a tea decoction for beneficial effects upon the stomach. In India, these are routinely chewed upon after meals to aid in digestion after a rich meal while acting as a herbal mouth freshener.Fennel seeds often provide quick and effective relief from many digestive disorders. They help to overcome gas, cramps, acid indigestion, and many other digestive tract maladies.Also these fennel seeds are very important in making many dishes in India, yea i cant prepare kurma or non vegetarian dishes without fennel seeds, my pantry always have a bottle of fennel seeds which i ground as fine powder often even for making masala with veggies or with meats, hope to see many delicious dishes prepared with fennel seeds for this month's event....Do send ur dishes prepared with fennel seeds, both vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes are welcome..
