HEXA Star Anise

Star Anise P

Star Anise or commonly called Star Aniseed and Chinese Star Anise is known as ‘Bunga Lawang’ in Malay and 八角’ in Chinese. It is the seed pod from the fruit of Illicium verum plant, an evergreen tree native to Southwest China and Northeast Vietnam. Star anise is a spice that has a very strong, distinct flavor that is sweet and spicy, similar to licorice, and should be used in small quantities. Although the flavor of star anise is generally thought of as sweet, it is commonly used in savory dishes; it pairs well with citrus, onions, poultry, beef, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. It is also considered as a secret ingredient in traditional Asian dishes as this warming, sweet spice can be simmered in broths and braises to add extra depth of flavor.

It is one of the main flavors in Chinese five spice powder and is also used to season roast duck and other meats. In Vietnamese cuisine, star anise is part of the well-known soup, phở, a Vietnamese noodle soup. On top of that, Star Anise is also a common spice in Indian cuisine, where it is used in the spice blend garam masala, as well as dishes like biryani and drinks such as chai.
