Origin: Cumin seeds originated in Egypt, and are now cultivated in most hot climates, including Mexico, India, Morocco, Turkey, Greece, and the Middle East.
Flavor: The flavor of the cumin seed is powerful and earthy, pungent, bitter, and somewhat spicy.
Aroma: Warm, strong, nutty
Culinary uses: Cumin is considered a warming spice. It is not truly "spicy," but it warms in a similar way that cinnamon does. It is used extensively in Indian cooking, as well as Latin cooking. The spice is best used whole or freshly ground for maximum flavor. The whole seeds can be toasted or bloomed in ghee to release the flavor. Use cumin with all sorts of meat or vegetable dishes, as well as cream sauce, salad dressing, and summer beverages. Cumin pairs well with coriander, other warming spices, chilies, and fresh herbs.
Buy cumin seeds from Pure Indian Foods to taste the organic difference. Our seeds have no pesticides or other unnatural elements added during their development. You simply have pure whole cumin seeds ready for the next recipe.
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. Pure Indian Foods only supplies the highest quality seeds in the industry.
Hi! I'm Sandeep.
I travel to India, Asia, South America, and Europe to bring you back some of the most pristine, pure, organic clean ingredients in the world. All the products you'll find here at Pure Indian Foods are ones that me and my family use personally.
My family has been making ghee since 1889. Today, my wife, Nalini (aka "The Ghee Lady"), carries on this tradition. She still makes all the ghee and tightens every jar by hand.
We are passionate about bringing you traditional and nourishing foods. It's our labor of love and service to human-kind. Thank you for supporting our small family business.
