Available in 100 grm and 200 grm packets Perilla seeds are known in the Khasi and Jaintia dialects as Nei leih or Nai lieh or the white variety of Til as it is more commonly known in Hindi. Perilla Seeds are quite a common flavoring used in NorthEast cuisine especially across the Khasi and Jaintia Hills. Ground into a paste, the perilla seeds add a rich flavour to fresh salads, and depth to meat curries and are also prepared as stand-alone chutneys. Perilla seeds are sometimes called White sesame but the Perilla plant (Perilla Frutescens) belongs to the mint family.
The taste of the seeds has a hint of minty licorice in addition to the nutty flavour. Perilla has many health benefits, it is used for treating asthma and is also used for nausea, sunstroke, inducing sweating, and to reduce muscle spasms.
