Here I am again hosting another guest event. This time it is "SYF&HWS - Cook With SPICES" Series and this months theme is "Cinnamon".
This series was originally concieved by Anu from Anu's Healthy Kitchen. I am sure most of you are familiar with her wonderful blog and very unique recipes. If you haven't visited her blog , do visit it now..
Now let's talk about this wonderful spice, Cinnamon...
This spice is obtained from the inner bark of several trees belonging to the Genus "Cinnamomum" and is a native of Sri Lanka. In Tamil it is known as"Pattai", in Hindi "Dalchini" and in "Karuvapatta" in Malayalam.
History takes its origin back to 2000BC and it was very highly priced that it was considered as gift to God.
The outer bark is scraped off, the inner bark is loosened and pulled in strips to a meter long. This should be processed when it is still wet and rolled into "Quills".
This spice has a very delicate flavour and aroma and used in different forms - powder, strips, oil and also used as medicine in Ayurveda. It is used in baking, smoothies, condiments, authentic Indian cuisine to Middle Eastern dishes all with the same zeal.
