Cubeb or kabab chini is a spice that finds a place in many Indian cuisines. It is often used for its special flavour to spice meat and vegetable dishes, soups and sauces.
A member of the pepper family, cubeb has a peppery, bitter, pungent flavour that’s tinged with a hint of allspice and nutmeg.
Crush the berries first before adding to any type of dish. Because of its aromatic qualities, cubeb goes well with cheese and vegetable dishes.
