Mustard is very small tiny grains that you get in black or dark brown in colors. It has a spicy, pungent smell and is used in tempering of various Indian curries. They are also used in paste form. Mustard can be used as a whole seed form or ground powder or paste form.

 Mustard seeds are obtained from the mustard plant which belongs to the same family as cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. Tadka is a very popular method of tempering the curries, chutneys, etc and the most common ingredient used in the tadka is mustard seeds. This is widely used to season rasam, dal, chutneys, pachadis etc in southern India combined with few sprigs of curry leaves and chopped green chillies along with a dash of hing.

 Types of Mustard seeds Mustard seeds are available in white, yellow, black & brown colors and are derived from three different plants. The black seeds are very pungent, volatile and expensive while the white seeds are much milder but can have the fieriness of the black seeds. The black and brown mustard seeds are widely used in Indian cuisine especially in Bengali and south Asian cooking. When fried, the mustard seeds gives a nutty taste rather than fiery.

 Uses of mustard seeds: Mustard seeds are used in numerous ways in Indian cooking. It is widely used in seed form and used in powder form to season/ flavor a variety of pickles.

Mouthwatering....Sanjay! I just can't keep looking at that awesome dish. I know how it would taste with mustard oil. But I think you'll need to go jogging daily or we'll have to see a chubby version in future. :P
