Introduction to cinnamon

Cinnamon is the dried bark of the cassia tree. Thanks to its warmth, citrus notes, and woody pungency, it is a central ingredient in traditional spice blends such as garam masala.

For a great way to enhance the flavors of your dish, you can add a little dash of ground cinnamon to a whole host of curries, biryanis, and pulaos and you’ll find it works well with both savory and sweet recipes. Cinnamon is also believed to have a wide variety of health benefits and healing qualities.
