「Fun, Yummy, healthy！」It is areUspicy to convey the charm of spices.
Today is the story of Fennel.
Origin of fennel is the Mediterranean coast. The part to be used as spice is seeds and leaf stems. It is a plant in which yellow florets bloom. Is not it a spice that is not so familiar in Japan? In India it is used as a bad bad omission.
In India, restaurants and mass eateries everywhere, fennel and cubic sugar in the table are together and handed over after meals. When I came across the sight for the first time, I did not know what to do. But the store clerk makes a gesture to eat, so I thought that it was “a candy of a yakinikuya” as I said in Japan, I ate as if I was a pretender. Peppermint mint? I like to have a taste like it. I will work more than candy! It was after a long time since I learned the meaning ^^;
Well, although it’s efficacy,
- Taste: sweet,pungent
- Function: cooling
- Work: digestion,abdominal pain、difficult or burning urination
- VIPAKA (taste after digestion): sweet
- VPK analysis: Vata and Kapha and Pitta equality
Much of the spice plays a role to raise Vata and Kapa and lower Pita, but Fennel prepares everything so it works effectively for any temperament people.
Of course I use it not only after meals but also for cooking.
Because it has a sweet scent, it is called “fish herb”, it is useful in fish dishes, and it is actually included in curry and soup.
