Ajwain is also known as ajowan caraway, thymol seeds, bishop’s weed, or carom. It is an annual herb in the family Apiaceae (or Umbelliferae). Both the leaves and the seedlike fruit (often mistakenly called seeds) of the plant are consumed by humans.
They have a bitter and pungent taste, with a flavor similar to anise and oregano. They smell almost exactly like thyme because they also contain thymol, but they are more aromatic and less subtle in taste, as well as being somewhat bitter and pungent. Even a small number of fruits tends to dominate the flavor of a dish. It is enough to know about it lets start the topic.
Process of growing Ajwain from seeds at home
For growing the seeds you don’t need any special kind of seeds. You just use simple ajwain for growing at home. First, you have to prepare the soil and I will tell you the process.
Soil Ingredients :
1) Fill Up the pot 80% with the coco peat.
2) Use 10% perlite
3) 10% Compost
Mix properly and give water to make the soil wet and now you have to plant seeds but remember one thing don’t plant seeds too close.
(Now don’t give the water) Now you have to cover the plant with the plastic polythene whereby the heat is remaining it helps to increase the germination process and you don’t feed the water until the seed does not start their germination process.
When the seeds are starting germinating then remove the plastic polythene over it and when the soil is dry and give some water and
after some days you see that the seeds are germinating well. Remember one thing plant the seeds only in a shady area and give water when the soil looks dry.
