You can find ajwain - Carmon seeds in almost every Indian and Pakistani kitchen because of common use of this spice in most dishes. Ajwain is commonly used for its strong taste and smell in tadka - heating in oil and powered over lentils and soups.
Rich in minerals and vitamins, ajwain is commonly used in many snacks like pakoras, samosa and other deep-fried Indian snacks.
A common use of Ajwain for digestion
Ajwain can help reduce acidity in the stomach, bloating and indigestion. Mix equal amount of salt and ajwain and chew it before drinking half a cup of water. You will immediately experience a soothing feeling. I use this mix quite frequently and eliminate the need for using Mylanta and other common antiacid medicines.
