Foraged from the wild: Commonly known as Tarota or Takla locally in Maharashtra, this is a plant that grows wildly on farm and forest boundaries across peninsular India. Our Cassia Tora seeds arrive from the Vidharbha region of Maharashtra.
Cassia Seeds Pan-roasted to perfection: Carefully foraged and selected cassia tora beans (locally known as tarota or takla), dried and pan-roasted to perfection. This intricate process adds the rich flavour and aroma to the final product.
Straight from the Wild to Your Coffee Table: Tarota has been an integral part of the women farmers in the Vidharbha region. After their work on the farms has been done for the day, these women wander through farm lands and forest boundaries, chatting and joyfully singing cultural and religious songs while they forage cassia tora seeds. These seeds are then collated and hand processed before they reach us - Rich in flavour, aroma and nutrition.
