Cinnamon (Dar Chini) دار چینی
Cinnamon/Dar Chini (دار چینی) is a powerful spice that has been used medicinally around the world for thousands of years. It is also known by its scientific name Cinnamomum Verum. It is still used daily in many cultures because of its widespread health benefits, not to mention its distinctly sweet, warming taste and ease of use in recipes. The unique smell, colour, and flavour of cinnamon are due to the oily part of the tree that it grows from.
According to researchers, out of twenty-six of the most popular herbs and medicinal spices in the world, cinnamon actually ranks #1 in terms of its protective antioxidant levels!
