Cumin Seed Powder ~ Certified Organic

“Cuminum cyminum”

Cumin is an aromatic spice with a distinctive bitter flavor and strong, warm aroma due to its high oil content.  The aromatic, somewhat bitter flavor is essential to good chili and is an indispensable ingredient in Indian, Cuban, Mexican, and Middle Eastern cuisine.

  • Be conservative
    Cumin’s flavor can easily overpower a dish, so it’s best to start with a small amount and add more to taste.
  • Pair with other flavors
    Cumin pairs well with many other flavors, such as carrots, turmeric, coriander, and garlic:

    • Jeera aloo: This simple, flavorful dish features cumin seeds along with potatoes, chilies, onions, garlic, turmeric, and red chili powder
    • Turmeric roasted cauliflower: When roasted with cumin, turmeric, garlic, coriander, and sea salt, cauliflower becomes warm, nutty, spicy, and slightly sweet
    • Roasted carrots with cumin: The crunchy cumin seeds cut through the sweetness of the carrots
