Our black mustard is a traditional Desi variety grown by farmer Rohit Jain in the tribal belt of Udaipur, which runs along the Aravali Range. Locally called "barik rai," the small, dark seeds are prized for their nutty flavor and classic sharpness. The seeds mellow with cooking — bloom in fat until they pop or toast for stir-fries, stews and vegetable dishes. Or use them for pickling!

Mustard grows on plants that produce bright yellow flowers on tall stalks. The seeds, which come in a variety of colors, are widely used to make the familiar condiment but also very commonly used in South Asian cooking. The pods are edible as well.

Our partner farmer Rohit Jain grows this exceptional black mustard on his farm in Udaipur.
