Cumin seeds impart distinctive strong flavor and warm perception on taste buds. Cumin has a warm, earthy flavour and is used extensively in Indian curries, Middle Eastern dishes and tex-mex food like chili. The ancient Greeks and Romans used it on the table the way we use pepper, but these days it’s probably under-used in western cuisine. Cumin seeds are often dry roasted before grinding or fried in oil to release their flavour if they are being used whole.

Cumin (Cuminum cyminum) is a small flowering herbaceous plant belonging to the Apiaceae, family, of the genus; 
Cuminum. Cumin seeds impart distinctive strong flavour and warm perception on taste buds. The 
seeds can be stored in cool, dry, dark place, in airtight containers for many months and can be
milled using hand-mill as and when required.

Cumin is generally toasted/ roasted gently before adding in a recipe. Some Indian vegetarians 
(Jeera daal, aaloo-jeera), chicken curries and rice dishes (biryani, pulao) use cumin on a 
regular basis. The seeds have also been used in the preparation of soups, barbecue sauces, 
pickling and as one of the ingredients in a variety of curry powders.
