Cumin Seed

CUMIN SEED IS ALSO KNOWN AS JEERA. In regions where highly spiced foods are preferred, cumin is a favourite. Cumin is the second most popular spice in the world after black pepper. Cumin seeds are used as a spice for their distinctive aroma. Cumin is most commonly used to flavor food and is widely available in both seed and powder form. While cumin is a favorite on the spice rack, it has a number of curative properties which make it a versatile natural medicine.

There are two types of cumin seed available —the black and white variety. White ones are generally used in curries and other large varieties of food. The black ones known as Shah Jeera are more pungent and mostly used in pulao (Pilaf) and biryani. This spice is widely used in Indian, Pakistani and Bangladesh dishes, and also in Middle Eastern and North African preparations. They are also used in Spanish stews and American pies.
