This exotic spice is almost unheard of outside India, but within India it's a sort of historic treasure. Chironji, also known as Charoli, is an sweet nutty flavoured seed, with a hard exterior but soft, butter and sticky inside. It gives a beautiful sweet floral aroma, a far cry from expected based on it's appearance. This texture and sweet flavour make it ideal for using in thickening curries and desserts alike. Most popular for use in thickening Kormas, a favourite northern delicacy relying on stewed rich flavoured meats and vegetables in a thick sauce. Outside cooking, Chironji is also a popular ingredient in traditional ayurvedic and Unani medicine. Also known as Charoli, Buchanania lanzan, almondettes

CAUTION: This spice is extremely delicate and prone to insecting. Please store in a freezer at all times to avoid spoiling, and squeeze out as much air as possible from your refill bag before zipping and storing.
