Mustard seeds: how to use in Indian dishes
Mustard seeds are very popular in Indian cooking, and are generally one of the first things added to the base of the dish. Heat your oil in a heavy pan. Once it’s very hot, add the mustard seeds. It should seem like they’re popping. Give them around 10 seconds before removing from the heat, or they will become bitter. Frying them brings out the sweet notes and adds real depth and flavour to curries and stir-fries.
