The Secret To Preparing Flavourful And Aromatic IngredientsGuardian Life — The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World News


Thinking of the best ways to build up flavours while cooking? Or how exactly you can get that rich, aromatic and flavourful taste in your meals through spices, herbs, petals fruits or nut that will add colour and texture in your meals?

Then you are in luck because I am about to share with you tips on how to do just that.

Let’s start with preparing nuts, spices and seeds.
Most seeds of herbs are used in preparing food either whole, crushed or grounded into powder form. But did you know that you also have them roasted or dry-fried to enhance their flavours?

Roasting Seeds
Seeds like mustard, coriander, fennel and cumin can be lightly roasted before crushing and using.
To bring out their flavours;
Heat a small heavy pan over medium heat for about 1 minute (1 minute should do the trick).
Add the seeds and dry-fry them. Make sure you shake the pan for a couple of minutes and voila!! the aroma will start to rise. However, you should pay close attention so the seeds burn.
