Authentic Indian Spices Star Anise is native to Southern China and Vietnam. Although not related to anise seeds, it has a similar aroma and taste. The licorice like flavor of the spice is mellowed by a distinct sweetness. In Chinese cooking it is added to poultry and is a key ingredient in the Chinese five-spice blend. In India, it is used mainly in rice dishes like biryani and meat curries. Star anise is either used as a whole or in grounded form.
- It is most often used in Asian cooking and is the main ingredient in Chinese “five-spice” powder.
- Both can be used interchangeably when ground.
- Keep in mind that Star Anise has a much stronger flavor when compared to anise seed. When replacing Star Anise with Aniseed, use twice the amount of Aniseed.
- Star anise traditionally is used in savory recipes, particularly with meats.
- It is often added whole to soups, stews and braising broths, to which it adds a sweet-licorice-peppery flavor.
