Rose Petals Pink 25g

Single spices from Maharishi AyurVedaAdd flavour and balance with spices


Spices are not just great flavour-enhancers, they come with therapeutic properties as well. Sauté your spices in Ghee and add to your dishes, add some to soups, stews and sauces as they're cooking or sprinkle over prepared vegetables or rice at the table. Convenient, and mouth-wateringly delicious!

Rose Petals pink


Rose petals are renowned for their cooling properties but also balance Vata and Kapha dosha. They support the female reproductive, nervous and circulatory systems.

  • Rose petals are considered cooling in Ayurveda, and therefore excellent for balancing Pitta.
  • Rose petals are said to contribute the sweet, pungent, bitter and astringent tastes.
  • Rose petals and hips can be brewed into a soothing fragrant tea.
  • Fresh or dried petals can be added to desserts and puddings.
  • Rose petals, in combination with saffron and cardamom, are used to flavour sweet rice.

How to cook with rose petals


One of the simplest ways to use dried rose petals is to grind them into a sweet or savoury spice mix, or use them to make flavoured sugar. Do this by layering a 1:2 rose/sugar ratio in an airtight container, and then sieving out the petals after a couple of weeks. The most common way of ensuring that rose petal flavours run through a whole dish is to stir a splash of rose water or rose essence into a sponge mix or custard. Infusion is another common way of cooking with rose petals. This might be a simple rose petal tea, a sugar-water infusion for a flavoured cocktail syrup, or a more complex infusion for a set-custard, gelatine or opaline. Often though, rose petals are used purely as decoration, as they're both beautiful and food-safe.

What rose petals go with


Rose petals are most commonly associated with Middle Eastern dishes, most notoriously Turkish delight, and make a beautiful partnership with saffron, honey, dried apricots, cardamom and coffee. Desserts like almond sponges or semolina puddings take on rose flavouring beautifully, but don't be afraid to incorporate this flavour into more Western dishes.

Rose petals are often used in a savoury context too — they're added to a traditional ras el hanout spice mixes, along with cinnamon, clove, cumin, turmeric, pepper, coriander and many more spices. Rose petals occasionally appear in Indian dishes. They are also a common ingredient in kulfi or sweetened rice dishes.

In the context of British cooking, clean flavours like cucumber or apple pair well with rose petals. Take inspiration from all things evocative of a classic English afternoon tea — rose petals steeped in hot water, rose and cucumber gin and rosehip jams. Crystallised petals are commonly used as decoration for wedding cakes, fairy cakes or Victoria sponges.

Spice Wise


Single spices from Maharishi AyurVeda The exotic colours and heady aromas of spices can elevate an ordinary dish into a sublime feast for the sense of sight, smell and taste. What's more, most spices also come with therapeutic properties, so every meal that includes spices can become an experience in enhancing health and well-being. Ayurveda, the ancient system of healing from India, has been singing the praises of spices as "wonder foods" for thousands of years. Spices are ingredients in many synergistic ayurvedic herbal formulations, and an ayurvedic expert, when giving you advice, is as likely to recommend specific spices to include in your diet as to suggest herbal supplements for you to take.
