Pomegranate (anar) is an extremely versatile fruit. It is used in a multitude of ways in the Indian kitchen ranging from a variety of condiments, marinades, breads (parathas) and even in desserts (fruit salad). Ground dried pomegranate seeds (anar dana) are also specifically used in various commercial spice blends that are particularly used for chaats.

I wanted to share the following pictures with you to demonstrate the versatility of this amazing fruit.
