Indian Sichuan Peppercorn Indo-Chinese Whole Spice (Timur)
We also have whole black peppercorn
Indian Sichuan Peppercorn is popularly known as teppal in India. Despite its name, this spice is not related to black pepper or chilli peppers. Sichuan pepper has a unique aroma and flavour that is not hot or pungent as black pepper. This spice has a peppery flavour with a lemon-like component and leaves a tingling sensation on the tongue that is slightly less powerful than Szechuan peppers from China.
Our Indian Sichuan Peppercorn is an indigenous wild plant sourced from west Garo Hill district of Meghalaya. We have collaborated with the farmers in remote villages of Meghalaya to ensure this elusive spice has been cultivated in fertile, unprocessed soil and is pure and flavourful.
Indian Sichuan Pepper is used a lot in Chinese Cuisine to make Sichuan Oil and Sichuan pepper sauce. However, it is also used in Mangalorean, Chinese, Japanese and some Himalayan Cuisine. People in Meghalaya use this spice to make chutneys and add to elevate the flavour to the traditional meat dishes.
You can use this for both mid-eastern grills, soups, roasted eggplant, chicken, fish curry etc.
Chefs use its numbing sensation to balance the heat of chilli pepper. It is mostly roasted or ground before adding to dishes or infused with oil and salt for a savoury seasoning. A few corns, mixed with other spices are more than enough to deliver the flavour.
