Mustard seeds are the small round seeds of various mustard plants. Grinding and mixing the seeds with water, vinegar, or other liquids creates the yellow condiment known as prepared mustard.

An archaic name for the seed is the eye of newt. Often misunderstood for an actual eye of a newt, this name has been popularly associated with witchcraft ever since it was mentioned as an ingredient to a witch’s brew in Shakespeare’s famous play Macbeth.

These are used as a spice in Northern India and Nepal. The seeds are usually roasted until they pop. They are also planted to grow saag (greens) which are stir-fried and eaten as a vegetable preparation, Sarson ka saag (sarron da saag in Punjabi). Sarson ka tel (mustard oil) is used for body massage during extreme winters, as it is assumed to keep the body warm. Mustard seeds are also essential ingredients in spicy fish dishes like jhaal and paturi.
