Dill. European dill is anethum graveolens. Indian dill is anethum sowa. Dill is an herbaceous plant, about 1 meter (3 ft) in height, with wispy leaves, bearing clusters of small yellow flowers and oval, pod-like fruits. In Europe the leaves are often used to flavour fish dishes. The fruits are also left to ripen on the plant until they have dried. The fragrant seeds are then extracted, threshed and dried. It has an aroma slightly reminiscent of caraway, warm, aromatic and tingly.
