Is Zater = Juwain?
Years ago I lived with a Jordanian bro in University accommodation. He used to sprinkle some Zater seeds on bread and toast the bread. It was quite tasty. Then one of my other flatmates noticed that Zater had a laxative effect.
In Pakistani culture for upset stomachs people take a handful or two of seeds with water. These seeds are called Juwain in Urdu/Punjabi.
I had Juwain yesterday and I seem to remember the seeds having the same taste as Zater.
Are Zater and Juwain different names for the same seeds?
