Dog Mustard or Wild Mustard is the seed of the Cleome viscosa plant used for tempering on culinary dishes. It is mostly grown and consumed in Uttarakhand and in the Terai regions of India and Nepal
The seeds are dark brown in color, and crackles on being heated in oil. It is used in the Garhwali and Kumaoni styles of cuisines.Because of its sharp pungent smell and crunchy taste, most Garhwalis prefer jakhiya over cumin and mustard seed for tempering. It is used in tempering of harasaags, vegetables, curries, pulses. Jakhiya is one of those pungent herbs that give Garhwali food the taste of mountains.
