You'll LOVE our Star Anise by Rani Brand--Here's Why:

Badian Khatai (Star Anise)

Star Anise is native to Southern China and Vietnam. Although not related to anise seeds, it has a similar aroma and taste. The licorice like flavor of the spice is mellowed by a distinct sweetness. In Chinese cooking it is added to poultry and is a key ingredient in the Chinese five-spice blend. In India, it is used mainly in rice dishes like biryani and meat curries. Star anise is either used as a whole or in grounded form.

Difference between Anise Seeds and Star Anise:

The main difference between aniseed and star anise is that aniseed is a small brown-colored seed while star anise is a seed pod having a star shape.

Although the names aniseed and star anise are similar, these names refer to two different types of spices obtained from plants of different families. However, both aniseed and star anise have a pungent licorice flavor, owing to the presence of anethole, an essential oil similar to the licorice flavor.

Culinary Uses of Star Anise:

  • It is most often used in Asian cooking and is the main ingredient in Chinese “five-spice” powder
  • Both can be used interchangeably when ground.
  • Keep in mind that Star Anise has a much stronger flavor when compared to anise seed. When replacing Star Anise with Aniseed, use twice the amount of Aniseed.
  • Star anise traditionally is used in savory recipes, particularly with meats.
  • It is often added whole to soups, stews and braising broths, to which it adds a sweet-licorice-peppery flavor.
