Anise seed (പെരും ജീരകം)

Pimpinella anisum, or anise seed, is a flowering plant that has a close similarity to some commonly used spices like star anise and fennel. The seeds are small in size, brownish-grey, and have a slightly curved surface with an aroma similar to liquorice. Anethole, an essential oil derived from anise seeds, is a good flavor-enhancing component in Asian dishes.


  • For the best shelf life, star anise should be kept in a dry, dark place. Whole seeds or powdered seeds can be used for cooking. However, powder loses its potency faster than whole seeds. Whole seeds can be kept for 3–4 years.

Kitchen Tips:

  • It is added to baked goods, pies, and fruit tarts. It can be boiled to make licorice-flavored tea, brewed into alcoholic beverages, etc.
