Javantri consists of the necessary oils, which gives out its peculiar rich aroma and a strong, warm taste. Javitri is a crimson red coloured thread-like material that envelops the nutmeg. Its mildly sweet taste is commonly used in infusions, such as tasting milk for a white sauce or marinated with meats. Chutneys and Pickles are also generally spiced with javantri. It is also decorated with biryani or rice making before serving.
