Homemade Anardana Powder | Dried Pomegranate Powder

Anardana is Pomegranate. These seeds when dried they retain little bit of the fleshy pulp and hence have a sweet-sour taste. In Indian cuisines these are used as souring agents similar to Imli | Tamarind, Kokum.

Thanks to a Chef we came to know about this amazing flavour and from then on we use this occasionally! 

Homemade Anardana Powder | Dried Pomegranate Powder


5 gm Dried Anardana | Pomegranate Seeds


  • In a non stick pan, dry roast Anardana seeds. They start popping, releasing a wonderful aroma and that is when you know they are done. It takes approximately 3 minutes for this quantity.
  • Switch off the gas and transfer the roasted Anardana seeds to a plate, to cool.
  • Grind to a coarse powder.
  • Store in an airtight container and refrigerate.
We can make many exotic dishes with this wonderful powder. We seldom make Bhindi Anardana, Alu Anardana, Anardana Mint Chutney. 

We generally buy Dried Anardana and refrigerate and make this roasted powder for 50 gms at one go and store. This way the flavour remains fresh.
