Shahi Jeera (Black Cumin Seeds)
Cumin seeds are very versatile and are used in various forms. Cumin seeds are crushed into cumin powder for adding flavour and taste to buttermilk, raita, or salad. The popping of whole cumin seeds brings a rich aroma to the food, especially dal fry and vegetable curry.
Cumin seeds roasted with a bit of salt are used as a mouth freshner in many homes.
