What is Vakataraha? Vakataraha (వకటరాహ) is the Telugu name for Dill (Anethum graveolens). Dill is an annual herb in the Apiaceae (Celery family). It is the only species in the genus Anethum. Dill is grown widely in Eurasia, where its leaves and seeds are used as an herb or spice for flavouring food. Dill immediately brings to mind dill pickles and potato salad today, but it has had a place for centuries in cuisines throughout Europe and Asia. Dill leaves are known as the dill weed herb, while dill seed is used as a spice. Fresh dill is in season in spring and early summer. You will find dried dill weed sold in the spice section of the supermarket, but the flavour is a pale substitute for fresh dill weed.
