Cassia bark is most suited to strong, spicy dishes. It is common in many curries and braised meat
dishes, adding an interesting, bitter sweet flavour to the mixture of other spices and herbs.
Add 2 or 3 sticks to a pot of rice to for extra flavour. It works extremely well when combined with star anise
, black cardamom
For curries, add the bark sticks right at the start to give the flavours time to work their way into the dish. You can also grind the sticks up if you like, though it's not necessary.
