Fennel is widely used throughout Asian cuisines for its sweet-sharp, anise-like aroma and flavor. Fennel figures heavily in curry and satay recipes, as well as in baking, sausage-making, and tomato sauces. It has a lighter feel than anise but provides a lively aroma and freshness to most dishes. Fennel seeds are often dry-toasted before building a curry, to create a warmer, slightly sweeter flavor. Fennel seeds are also chewed directly as a snack throughout the world as a breath freshener and digestive aid.
