Recipes Starring Poppy Seeds


Strongly associated with the Baltic region, where they are used in abundance in baking, poppy seeds add a crunchy texture and mild, nut-like flavor. Try a Poppy Seed Roll, made up of poppy seeds and dried fruit paste, wrapped in a sweet yeast dough. Add them to pastries, waffles, wafers, cakes, and even fudge. Poppy seeds are also used in abundance in savory dishes in South Asian kitchens, particularly in Bangladesh.
