Brown Mustard Seeds
Mustard seeds are from the mustard plant, brown mustard has a pungent taste and is the type used to make Dijon mustard.
How to Use:
The whole seeds lack aroma but as you crush and cook with them their punchy, nutty flavour is quickly released. Brown and black mustard seeds are favoured in Indian cooking and go particularly well with fish. In India, whole brown seeds are fried in oil until a popping sound is heard. This gives the seeds a nutty flavour, important in many vegetarian dishes.
