Taramira oil or jamba oil, is a seed oil, pressed from the seeds of the arugula (Eruca sativa). Because the plant is highly drought resistant, the oil is popular in regions of poor rainfall, particularly in West Asia and Northern India. The oil is highly pungent and, upon extraction, acrid. The pungency differs from that of mustard oil, although taramira oil can be used to make a sort of mustard. In India, the oil is used for pickling, after aging to reduce the acridity, as a salad or cooking oil.
