Ingredient soup cumin seeds tif

Cumin

These are tiny elongated brown-grey seeds, essential to curries, but also widely used in Mexican, Middle Eastern and Moroccan cooking.

Roasted and ground, they have a warm, earthy flavour that is intensely fragrant. The combination of cumin and allspice in the Tunisian Aubergine Salad recipe is a fine example of the role of spices in cooking.
