Cumin Seed, Ground


Cumin is an important ingredient in several world cuisines. It has a unique and potent flavor crucial to Indian curries, where it’s often roasted before grinding to impart a toasted, nutty flavor. The aromatic, somewhat bitter, taste is essential to good chili. This warming seed is a primary taste in curry, and used in some traditional French bread. It pairs well with fava beans and eggplant.
