Fragrant Fennel Brittle

Fragrant Fennel Brittle

  • TOTAL TIME: 15 MIN
  • SERVINGS: MAKES ABOUT 1 CUP

Roasted fennel seeds mixed with sugar candies are offered at the end of an Indian meal as a kind of digestif. In Jehangir Mehta’s East-West version, the seeds are coated in caramel to make a unique candy.

INGREDIENTS

 

  • 3 tablespoons fennel seeds
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water

 

HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

  1. Line a baking sheet with a 10-by-15-inch sheet of parchment paper. Toast the fennel seeds in a small skillet over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.
  2. In a small saucepan, cook the sugar and water over moderate heat until richly browned, about 13 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the fennel. Immediately pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and spread it 1/8 inch thick with a heatproof spatula. Break the warm brittle into rough 1-inch pieces.
