Whole cumin seeds are used in cooking to add a warm, earthy flavor. They’re commonly used in dishes like curries, soups, and rice, and can also be toasted for a richer, aromatic taste.
cumin can add nutty warmth, pepperiness and smokiness with a faintly musty aroma to all manner of dishes. Ground cumin has an amazing flavor that enhances earthy dishes like roasted vegetables, braised onions and braised cabbage.
start by heating a dry skillet or pan over medium heat. Add the whole cumin seeds and toast them for about 1-2 minutes, or until they become aromatic and slightly darker in color. Be careful not to burn them. Once toasted, you can crush or grind them for a finer texture, or add them directly to your recipes for a warm, earthy flavor.
