Anardana refers to dried seeds of pomegranate fruit. This anardana is from a variety of wild pomegranate called daru, which grows in the Uttarakhand Himalayas, is reputed to yield the best anardana.
Bits of pomegranate pulp remain on the seeds as they dry, so the slightly sticky seeds with a fruity, mildly sweet and tangy taste are used as a souring agent in Indian cuisine. They are used mainly in vegetable and legume dishes, as well as a few Moghlai dishes.
