Product Overview

Cumin Seeds, also known as jeera, are dried and ridged with a warm, earthy flavour and bitter undertones. First cultivated in Egypt, white cumin is now a global spice and essential in Latin American, Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines.

Typically, white cumin seeds are dry roasted in a pan to release their aroma and used in many Indian dishes such as tarka dal, curries and stews. Across the Middle East, cumin is used as a meat rub or to add depth to tagines and stews. In Latin America, cumin adds a smoky depth to chilli con carne, adobo and fajitas.

    Recently I found I had run out of ground cumin, but then I found an old pack of Seasoned Pioneers cumin seeds dated 2009 at the back of the cupboard. I ground up the seeds and the resulting powder was pungent and full of flavour, the best cumin I have used in a long time.

    Extremely versatile seed, love to use it to spice up fried/grilled Hallumi Cheese. It’s great with cabbage too
