Star anise is a spice which has the form of a star. In India it is called anasphal (Hindi). It is a plant that gives a flower with eight carpels. Each carpel (lobe) contains a shinning seed. The star anise is maroon red.

It is frequently used in Asian and Indian cuisine because it is a very aromatic spice that smells quite strong, stronger than green anise.
