Buchanania lanzan is a deciduous tree which produces seeds edible by humans.[1] It is known as Chironji (or Charoli[2]). These almond-flavoured seeds are used as a cooking spice primarily in India.[3] Buchanania lanzan is cultivated across India, primarily in the northwest. After the hard shell is cracked, the stubby seed within is as soft as a pine nut.[3]

The charoli seed is lentil-sized, is slightly flattened and has an almond-like flavour. Though they can be eaten and used raw they are often toasted or roasted before use, as this intensifies the flavour.[2]

They are commonly used in sweets in India. However, they are also ground into powders for thickening savory sauces and flavoring batters, and stewed into rich, meaty kormas.[3]

Charoli seeds are used in the Ayurveda and Unani systems of medicine.[4]
