Geek talkCuminium cyminum

But we talkJeera, Cummin

DescriptionOver 5000 years old, Cumin was known to Egyptians and used in mummification! Native to Iran, the Mediterranean and the Indian subcontinent it has made its way into the global kitchen across cuisines. It is mainly used in powder form (either raw or roasted) but is also used whole in Indian cooking as a seasoning agent. It is an indispensable ingredient in a wide variety of curry powders including garam masala. Its a mild spice (by flavor) and a bit dense though roasting Cumin creates a slightly smoky flavor quite distinct from the raw seed.

Kitchen PharmacyCumin is a known digestive and antiseptic and may help fight flu, help in the control of cholesterol, triglycerides, and improve overall immune response. May also help fight nausea and morning sickness. A teaspoon of Cumin has nearly 7% of the daily value of iron. On a cautionary note, it is known to carry the risk of hypoglycemia if eaten in large doses.
