There are a lot of world-class and world-renowned chefs across the
globe who always choose to add edible flowers to their high-quality
foods and dishes just to make them more electrifying. In India, the
demand for adding blooms to food has been a long time coming.
It doesn’t matter if you are preparing a banana blossom curry or you are
making the most favourable sweet and desert, gulab jamun, one always
prefers to use flowers in it. A lot of us believe in kitchen gardening and
follow it as a passion or hobby, but few of us carry it to another stage.
Gardeners have started to raise small blooms and herbs that will serve
your cooking purposes.
The flowers present in your home garden grow splendidly, but just
imagine how it would have been if those edible flowers were used in
your food without getting plucked from the garden. Yes, you can
definitely get edible flowers, not from your garden by ruining its beauty,
but from online flower delivery in gurgaon. Here we have come up
with a list for you, which you can go through before placing your order.
1. Mint Flowers
All the flowers that originate from the mint family can be used in food as
they are proven to be edible at all times. These flowers are highly used
in the preparation of garnish drinks, custards, lemonade, and iced teas
because the florals possess a minty flavour that adds to the taste of
these foods. These blooms also make the best partners with many
vegetables while making vegetable curry.
This little bunch of white flowers is highly enriched in Vitamin A, C, and
E. These small-scale baby flowers are a little bitter in taste, but to
remove that bitterness, you can always wash them with water and
squeeze them with salt. After this, it can be added to the vegetables as
its intensity of flavour has decreased now and it will definitely make a
yummy and healthy meal for you. We are just starting to know the
benefits of papaya fruits and their leaves, but papaya flowers also do
their best to help us make our food even more delicious.
3. Marigold Flowers
The vinegar that we obtain from the flower marigold is often used in the
dressing of salads. This is done because the bloom is so vibrant in
colour and has an absolutely distinct flavour. These minutely bitter
flowers have a distinct earthy taste and make themselves beneficial by
being added to various meals. You can also produce a good cup of tea
by using these blooms. To do that, first the leaves of this flower need to
be dehydrated and then added to the boiling hot water to have a hot
drink. Marigolds, just to be extra helpful, can also be used as a source of
pest repellant too.
People who have a broad knowledge of cooking never forget to add
nasturtium as an ingredient in stir fries by stuffing the flower and pickling
the buds. The thought of this flower being so useful and having such an
ideal dominant taste amazes our minds. If you have an iron deficient
family member or friend who is deficient in Vitamin C, you can always
opt for send flowers online.
5. Moringa Flowers
The flowers of Moringa are packed with the finest tastes of flavours and
are used in the widest range of flavours in South India. These flowers
add a spicy and sour taste to the food. They lead to the preparation of
sambar, a mild chutney, and also a very soothing tea after they are
boiled in water. These little sepals are really helpful in reducing tension
and healing muscle spasms because they are calcium and potassium
enriched. It is used as a great vegetable in the South of India and is also
well known by the name of drumsticks.
The most common, most and most used flower, lavender, which serves
all our purposes of decorating the house, gifting it to someone, making
cosmetic items, getting used in perfumes, has now also made its way to
getting used in dishes. Chefs say these flowers are highly recommended
for amplifying the dish by sparingly using them. Lavender tends to set
you free from all hair and skin problems too. It is the master addition to
honey, adding even more sweetness to it.
