Anardana powder is a spice made from dried pomegranate seeds. “Anardana” is a Persian term that translates to “pomegranate seeds” in English. The seeds are dried and then ground into a fine powder, which is used as a flavoring agent in various cuisines, particularly in Indian, Middle astern, and Mediterranean cooking.
Anardana powder has a tangy and slightly sweet flavor, similar to tamarind, and is often used to add a sour and fruity element to dishes. It can be used in both savory and sweet recipes, such as chutneys, marinades, sauces, salads, and beverages. In Indian cuisine, it is commonly used in spice blends, like chaat masala, to enhance the overall taste of dishes.
