Hexa Star Anise Seeds 60g
Star Anise or commonly called Star Aniseed and Chinese Star Anise is known as ‘Bunga Lawang’ in Malay and ‘八角’ in Chinese. It is the seed pod from the fruit of Illicium verum plant, an evergreen tree native to Southwest China and Northeast Vietnam. Star anise is a spice that has a very strong, distinct flavor that is sweet and spicy, similar to licorice, and should be used in small quantities. Although the flavor of star anise is generally thought of as sweet, it is commonly used in savory dishes; it pairs well with citrus, onions, poultry, beef, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. It is also considered as a secret ingredient in traditional Asian dishes as this warming, sweet spice can be simmered in broths and braises to add extra depth of flavor.
It is one of the main flavors in Chinese five spice powder and is also used to season roast duck and other meats. In Vietnamese cuisine, star anise is part of the well-known soup, phở, a Vietnamese noodle soup.
