Ajowan is also known as Ajwain, Bishop's Weed, Carum, Omam or Omum. It is native to India. Now it is also grown in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt and Iran. Ajowan is closely related to cumin and caraway, but it contains the essential oil thymol, which gives it a stronger, yet similar taste to thyme.

 

Ajowan seeds, when crushed, are said to deter cockroaches.

Thymol also is used in medicines that sooth throat irritations and reduce coughs. Ajowan is particularly suited to vegetarian fare and goes best with legumes, breads, root vegetables and fish. These dry seeds keep indefinitely.

Ajowan is native to southern India.
“I was in Boulder and I made a point of stopping in your store near Pearl St. I had a terrific time. I love being able to buy small quantities of different spice mixtures/spices to try and I certainly bought my fair share on this visit.”
