What Are The Main Uses?

Cumin seeds are a versatile spice used in various culinary traditions worldwide. Not only used for seasoning and to add flavour in stews and curries they are some times tempered (fried in ghee or oil to release the flavour, this seasoned oil is then added to dhals or rice, alongside coriander, turmeric and chilli). In the Middle East they are often added to bread dough to add an aromatic flavour to naans and flatbreads.

When using cumin seeds, it’s common to toast them in a dry pan over medium heat until fragrant before grinding or using them whole. This releases their essential oils and enhances their flavour. Additionally, storing whole cumin seeds in a cool, dark place in an airtight container helps retain their potency and flavour for longer periods.

Whole cumin seeds hold a notable place in traditional herbal medicine for their potential health benefits. Rich in antioxidants and thought to possess anti-inflammatory properties, these seeds are believed to aid digestion by stimulating enzymes that assist in breaking down food and reducing gastrointestinal discomfort. In herbal remedies, cumin seeds are often infused into teas or decoctions to help to alleviate indigestion, bloating, and gas. Their carminative properties make them a popular choice for addressing digestive issues and promoting gut health. Moreover, some herbal practices suggest their use in managing respiratory conditions due to their potential anti-congestive and expectorant properties. While more research is needed to validate these claims, whole cumin seeds continue to be valued in herbal medicine for their purported digestive and respiratory health benefits.
