- Country of Origin: Produce Of India
Cumin is one of the most popular spices and is commonly used in Latin American, Middle Eastern, North African, and Indian cuisines, among many others. It has a warm and earthy flavour with a tangy musky and somewhat bitter aroma to it. Cumin seeds, in Indian cuisine are often chewed as a digestive aid in India and may be offered at Indian restaurants at the completion of a meal for this purpose.
Whole cumin seeds should be included early in the recipe so the spice has time to release its essence; adding them to a hot broth or oil will allow the aroma and flavours to disperse into the dish. Cumin is an essential spice for Indian curries and chutneys. The spice also works well in a variety of rice dishes, stews, soups, breads, pickles, barbecue sauces, meat and chili con carne recipes.
OH… and P.S
Cumin is also high in inflammation-fighting antioxidants to repair skin damage and keep skin looking young. It’s also naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory to soothe skin and keep it blemish free.
One more fun fact: The seeds can be kept in the freezer over a long period to maintain their flavour if you do not use them regularly; otherwise, the seeds can be stored in the pantry for up to 3 to 4 years!
