Symptoms : H(018), H(095)
Recipes : H(095) Tikur-azmud, a spice, is used for several reasons, one of which is its flavoring quality. It was used quite frequently in olden days to flavor bread. Now however, it is used more in beverages where it is mixed with black papper, korerima (Aframon leororima), and ginger (Curcuma lonqa) Such strong local drinks as areke and katikala contain this preparation. The reason advanced for the use of tikur-azmud is that it allegedly possesses the ability to dispel headaches H(018) and various diseases.
H(018) to dispel headache, the seeds, mixed with melted butter, are wrapped in a clean piece of cloth, and sniffed.
