Indian Celery Seeds: The Spice That Adds a Unique Taste to Your Meals

Botanically known as Apium Graveolens, celery seeds are the herbaceous plant of the parsley family, Apiaceae. Celery is an umbelliferous, aromatic, herbaceous plant grown for its leaves, seeds, oleoresin and essential oil. The rigid fruit is small, ovoid, 1 to 1.5mm long, 1 to 2mm in diameter, and contains a tiny brown seed.

Celery seeds are procured from the flowers of celery plants. The seeds have an intense, warm astringent flavour. India is one of the largest celery producers.  

Celery is a winter crop.  Out of the total cultivation of Indian celery seeds, majority of its produce is exported to the USA, followed by the Netherlands, South Africa, and Australia.  The celery seeds used for exports commercially are extracted from the flower. They are generally used as a perfect seasoning to enhance the taste of dishes like fish, chicken, potatoes, tomato, carrot, eggs, etc. 

Interestingly, celery is a direct example of a man’s transformation of plants. Kin to carrots, parsley, parsnips and dill, and celery seeds are cultivated in moist, wild, salty soils in Europe and Western Asia. In the ancient era, the plant was a semi-poisonous weed with thin, hollow stalks (botanically recognized as petioles), used for ornamentation, medical reasons, and a popular condiment.

The seeds are used in an array of ways to complement your everyday meals as seasonings in soups, stews and sauces, to add flavours to homemade pickles, to enhance the delectability of coleslaw salads and in baking bread or cracker dishes for an extra tinge of the savoury element. It becomes hard to ignore the pleasing, crisp texture and subtle flavours of the seeds with a slightly bitter after-taste that is equally unique in its form.

Besides celery seed export, the various states where the crop is grown and cultivated are Punjab ((Jalandhar, Gurdaspur and Amritsar districts), Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh (Ladhwa and Saharanpur districts) over an area of about 5000 ha.
