Ajwain (botanical name of Trachyspermum copticum as from the ITIS Standard Report Page) (also known as Ajowan caraway, carom seeds or mistakenly as bishop's weed), is an uncommon spice except in certain areas of Asia. Ajwain is often confused with lovage seed; even some dictionaries mistakenly state that ajwain comes from the lovage plant. In Hindi it is called as Ajwain (अजवायन). Ajwain is also called 'Owa (ओवा)' in Marathi, "vaamu" or Oma in Telugu, "omam" (ஓமம்) in Tamil, "ajwana" in Kannada, "ajmo" (અજમો) in Gujarati, "jowan" in Bengali, "jwanno" in Nepali, "asamodagam" in Singhalese and "xiang zhu la jiao" (香著辣椒) in Chinese.
