CUMIN SEED - 98 % SING & 99 % SING
Cumin is one such spice that forms an integral part of various dishes in the Indian cuisine. Cumin or â in Hindi, ââ in Telugu, ââ in Tamil, ââ in Malayalam, ââ in Kannada, ââ in Gujarati, ââ in Marathi and ââ in Bengali is basically a tiny seed of an annual plant in the parsley family, native to the Mediterranean . A typical cumin seed has a striped pattern of nine ridges and oil canals. It is brownish in colour and oblong shaped, tapering at each extremity with tiny stalks attached. Cumin seeds resemble caraway seeds in appearance. However, they are lighter in colour, hotter to taste, larger in size and unlike caraway, have minute bristles that are hardly visible to the naked eye.
Cumin seeds are generally available in three colours- amber, white and black. The amber seeds are the most common. The black ones have a complex flavor and cannot be substituted for the other two. Black cumin seeds or nigella are different from cumin seeds though both are similar in appearance. Known as âkalonjiâ in northern India and âkaalo jeereâ in Bengal, they have a pungent, powerful, sharp and slightly bitter flavor and a spicy-sweet aroma. They have a thin crescent shape.
