Cumin Seed Powder
Botanical Name - Cuminum cyminum
Other Names - Jiraka
Origin - India
Cumin is a member of the parsley family and native to India and the eastern Mediterranean. Both the whole and ground seed is widely used in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking as well as in Mexican cuisine. In Morocco, the spice is kept in a small container at the table like salt and pepper so that individuals can season their food to taste
Powdered cumin tends to bring out the sweetness of other foods in a recipe, although remember to observe the wisdom of the “less is more” philosophy. Try adding some to scrambled eggs, rice, hummus and potatoes.
Cumin has a warm, pungent flavor that goes well with cardamom, cinnamon, red pepper, fennel, thyme and oregano.
Add to homemade curry, taco and fajita seasoning mixes. Ground cumin is also good with egg and cheese dishes, beans (especially lentils) and cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower.
Powdered cumin is also used to make poultices.
