Spice Garden ,Goa was quite an interesting place to see.Though initially we were reluctant to go there , we enjoyed it at the end of the day.

So where do our most common spices come from :

Betel Nuts (Supari) come from the yellow fruit above

Pepper and white pepper are here.The red fruit is dried for black pepper and boiled for white pepper.

Cardamom appears at the bottom of this herb.

Cinnamon(DalChini) and Bay leaves(Tej Patta) come from one tree

Those green buds are cloves(laung)

All your herbal tea from this lemon grass

Nutmeg(jaiphal) and Mace (javitri) come from this fruit.

Some chillis known to be 800 times stronger than usual ones. I forgot the name.

Cashew Tree

Cashew in all its colours
