aggravating Pitta. In India, eating a few toasted fennel seeds after a meal is a common practice, both
aid digestion and to freshen the breath.

and flavor to dry vegetable dishes, and ground fennel works very well in sauces. Fennel combines
make a thin paste and add to the spices to simmer — cook into a rich sauce for vegetables. Fennel
seeds can be baked into cookies and muffins and a small quantity of ground fennel can be added
to rice pudding for an exotic flavor.
