Yellow Mustard is one of the oldest spices and one of the most widely used in the world. In India these seeds are fried in ghee until the seed pops producing a milder nutty flavour that is useful as a garnish of dishes.

Yellow mustard can provide some protein, fiber and vitamins -- such as vitamin C and many of the B-complex vitamins. It is particularly rich in several minerals that are important for good health. Be careful, however, not to consume too much of it; yellow mustard is also high in sodium, which can increase your risk of heart disease if consumed in excess
