Thanks for contacting us. We'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Cumin seeds are the dried seeds of the Cuminum cyminum plant, a member of the parsley family. They are one of the most widely spices throughout the world. Cumin seeds bring big flavor to Indian, Middle Eastern and Mexican cooking. Cumin is a key ingredient in many spice blends, such as curry powder, garam masala, and taco seasoning.

Cumin seeds have a warm, earthy and slightly peppery flavor with hints of citrus and nuttiness. They add depth and are often described as having a slightly smoky aroma.

Toast whole cumin seed prior to grinding or cooking with them to enhance their flavor. In Indian cooking, cumin seeds are frequently used in tempering, a technique where whole spices are briefly fried in oil or ghee to release their flavors before adding other ingredients to the dish. This process helps to enhance the aroma and flavor of the spices. Use cumin seeds to make your own Curry Blends - like in our Crawfish Curry and Dal recipes.

Cumin seeds are not only valued for their culinary uses but also for their potential health benefits. They are believed to aid digestion, improve metabolism and have anti-inflammatory properties.
