Anashuppu/Star Anise 20 gm Pouch
Star anise is the dried, star shaped fruit of Illicium verum. It is dark-brown in colour with eight segments. It has a sweetish licorice taste. The star-shaped fruits are picked just before ripening and dried before use. They contain the same essential oil as the botanically unrelated Spanish anise seed, which gives the two a nearly identical flavor – strong, sweet, and licoricey.
