Select between whole or ground cumin seeds when ordering Cumin Seeds (Jeera) online. Whole seeds offer slightly more flavor when ground at home because all the oils are trapped within the cumin. However, ground white cumin seeds are much more convenient when the resident chef is in a hurry. Keep plenty of cumin on hand to create some of the best curries in the world.
