Cloves

 
 

A common spice of Kerala, cloves are the dried floral buds of Eugenia caryophyllaeta. Keralites call it Grambu or Karayambu.
Clove is one of the key ingredient of 'garam masala' (spices in varying proportions roasted and powdered). Traditionally garam masala is prepared and preserved at home, but now masala in ready to use powder form is available under different brand names. Cloves are also used to flavour sweets.
Cloves are available in sealed packs, which can be preserved for years together, at any provision store in the state.
In addition to being a flavouring agent clove has medicinal value too. Clove oil is a balm for tooth ache - Even the crushed leaves of the clove tree give relief to tooth ache. Clove oil is also effective in the treatment of acidity and indigestion. Prices varies according to quality and seasons.
