General Information

Cumin Seeds are the seeds of an ancient plant historically grown and used in Egypt and the Middle East. The cumin plant in the family Apiaceae is native to the Irano-Turanian Region and usually grows between 30 to 50 cm tall and has a green stem and white or pink flowers. Its seeds have an oblong shape and are yellow-brown. Based on shading, amount of oil, and flavour, cumin seeds are categorised into three main sorts of Iranian, Indian and South Asian, and Middle Eastern. Today, cumin is mainly cultivated in India, Northern Africa, Mexico, Chile, and China.
In manufacturing, cumin oil is used in the cosmetic industry, especially skincare products.
Cumin is sometimes confused with caraway. Cumin has an earthy, bitter taste and warming aroma due to its essential oil content popular in flavour-packed Indian savoury dishes rather than caraway’s distinctive licorice taste with properties similar to anise or fennel seed and its popularity for use in cheese, bread and German recipes.
Cumin is sharper in flavour, lighter in colour, and the boat-shaped seeds are larger than caraway seeds.

Delicious Ways to Use Cumin Seeds

Cumin seeds are very popular in many parts of the world, especially in India. Cumin seeds are widely used in meat and vegetable dishes and many types of soups and sauces. They are also added to pickles, sauerkraut, bread and even cheese.
Unlike ground cumin, it is better to add whole cumin seeds at an early stage in the recipe to give enough time to disperse the aroma and flavours into the dish; also, you can add the cumin seeds to a hot broth or oil to release its essence.
Serving and Portion size
Cumin is generally considered safe when taken in food amounts; however, rare allergic reaction cases to cumin are reported in some people.

Storage

Cumin seeds should be stored in a cool, dark place in a container with tight lids. To maintain their flavour for a long period, you can keep the cumin seeds in the freezer if you don’t use them regularly. In this way, it can be store for years.
