Product Description

Sathva Mustard seeds are the smaller variety also known as the podi kadugu.  The difference between the two lies primarily in their size and flavor.  Podi kadugu is noticeably smaller in size compared to regular mustard seeds. The smaller size allows them to blend more seamlessly into dishes, ensuring an even distribution of flavor.

Podi kadugu tends to have a slightly stronger and sharper taste. The smaller seeds pack a punch, contributing a more intense spiciness and nuttiness to the dishes they are used in.

These seeds, carefully harvested, undergo a meticulous sun-drying process that removes moisture while preserving their natural essence. 

 

Uses of mustard seed

Podi kadugu is an integral part of tempering or tadka. It is frequently added to hot oil or ghee at the beginning of cooking to release its flavor and aroma. 

 Toast the seeds lightly before grinding or crushing them and then mix them with other ingredients like lemon juice, vinegar, herbs, and spices. The mustard flavor will add depth and complexity to your dressings and marinades.

  1. Sprinkle whole or crushed podi kadugu over roasted or sautéed vegetables for an extra burst of flavor. The heat will enhance the mustard seeds' taste, infusing the vegetables with their spicy and nutty notes. This works well with vegetables like cauliflower, brussels sprouts, or potatoes.

  2.  Incorporate podi kadugu into bread doughs or sprinkle it on top of the bread before cooking. The seeds will add a delightful crunch and a hint of spiciness.
