   Introduction

The pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub or small tree that grows to between five and eight meters tall and is best suited to climates where winters are cool and summers are hot. It is now widely cultivated throughout Eastern Europe, Asia and the USA, the main areas of world production being in India, Iran, Spain and California. Pomegranates can be consumed as fresh fruit or used in fruit juices, teas, pharmaceutical and medicinal products and in dyes or as decoration.


   Description

 

Anardana is the dried seeds of varieties of pomegranate (Punica granatum) too sour to eat as fresh fruit; they have a tangy, fruity flavour. The wild pomegranate called daru, which grows in the southern Himalayas, is reputed to yield the best anardana. Though used mostly for vegetables and legumes, anardana also flavours Moghul-style dishes. Bits of pomegranate pulp remain on the seeds as they dry, so they're a bit sticky and serve as a souring agent in Indian cuisine. The seeds are roasted and then ground and used instead of lime juice especially in places that have winters and fresh limes are not available. Pomegranate Seeds (Anardana) are used as a souring agent in Indian cooking in a similar manner to Tamarind, Kokum and Amchur.
