    Is Zater = Juwain?

    Is Zater = Juwain?

    :salams

    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?

    Juwain - I assume is ajwain (which is what its called in Urdu) which are caraway/lovage seeds.

    Zatar - is a mixture of herbs/spices, normally toasted sesame seeds makes the base.

    They are different things.

      Za'tar is often used to sprinkle on a saucer of olive oil and then bread dipped into it and eaten. The one I have (with the Zaytoun Olive Oil) is a mixture of: Marjoran Syriaca, Sesame, Olive oil, Sumac.
      What does 'freedom' mean?

      Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
      Restricted by the sky?

      Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
      Not enough river to explore?

      Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
      but death for the fish,

      The sea is wide for the fish
      but will engulf the bird.

      We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
      We can only express our nature as it was created.

      The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
      freedom from slavery to other than the One,
      Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
      and a horizon that extends to the next life,
      Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

        You're right it should be called ajwain. :up:

          Not sure about toasting, but you can put into naan dough for example or puri dough although a small pinch in a batch of dough is more than enough (unless you really like the taste!)

              Assalamo alaikum,

              the main ingredient in zatar is ground thyme, mixed with roasted sesame seeds, sumac and other ingredients depending on the region.

              Is ajwain not yansoon (anise seeds)?

                aniseed is saunf. ajwain is different
