What is Horiyah (হৰিয়হ) – Horiyah (হৰিয়হ) is the Assamese name for Black Mustard Seeds.
Black Mustard or Horiyah (হৰিয়হ) (Brassica nigra) is known both as oilseed as well as spice. Internationally, however, it is more popular as a spice.
Horiyah (হৰিয়হ) is also called Spice of Nations because it is so universal.
Pungent and flavourful, mustard has remained an important condiment throughout the ages. It is available in whole seeds, as a powder, or “flour,” and, most popular, as a prepared paste.
Horiyah (হৰিয়হ) are the small round seeds of various mustard plants. The seeds are usually about 1 to 2 millimetres (0.039 to 0.079 in) in diameter and may be coloured from yellowish white to black.
