Dagad Phool or Kalpasi or Black Stone Flowers

An almost unknown spice in the Indian spice repertoire, Dagad Phool or Kalpasi, is a soft brown coloured lichen or fungus. A rare but essential component of Garam Masala and Goda Masala. Kalpasi is popular in Chettinad and Marathi cuisine! 

When it is used in small quantities in curries, it releases a strong woody, earthy aroma and flavor. Kalpasi has a very dry, light fluffy texture and feel to it.

For better results it should be roasted in a little oil to release its full aroma!
