What are mustard seeds and how do I use them?

07 April 2021

Mustard seeds are most commonly available in two different colors.

The yellow variety are the milder and slightly sweeter of the two; these seeds are used to make traditional American mustard. The other variety, which is black or brown in color with a much more intense taste, is used to make Dijon mustard.

METHODS

rnThe sharp pungency of mustards such as wholegrain Dijon work beautifully with the nutty grains of wild rice. The grain also combines well with dry fried brown and black mustard seeds used in traditional Bengali and South Indian cookery.
