So, what is cumin?

Cumin, also known as jeera in some regions, is a spice widely used in cooking for its earthy, warm, and slightly bitter flavor. It is native to the Mediterranean and Southwest Asia but is now widely cultivated in many countries. Cumin seeds are small, elongated, and slightly curved with a distinctive aroma that intensifies when toasted or ground. The spice is commonly used in Mexican, Middle Eastern, Indian, and North African cuisine, adding depth and complexity to dishes like tacos, curries, and hummus. Cumin is also rich in antioxidants and has been linked to numerous health benefits, including improved digestion, lower blood sugar, and cholesterol levels.
