cumin (seed or ground)
Cumin is a spice that imparts an earthy, warming and aromatic character to food.
Cumin (Cuminum cyminum) is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae. Its individual seeds are contained within a fruit, which is dried, are used both whole and in ground form. It imparts an earthy, warming and aromatic character to food, making it a staple in certain stews and soups, as well as spiced gravies such as curry and chili.
This is not really a Mexican rice recipe, but that is what it was called back in the 1980s. I used to make this back when I was a single working mom. It was cheap, had protein, veges, and carbs. Best of all, it was only a little prep and fast!

This simple dish is perfect for lunch. Its a good way to use up left-over boiled potatoes too. Cumin seeds love potatoes and mushrooms, the spinach adds a fresh note and the Gruyère cheese brings a luxurious nutty sweetness. Spike it with as much chilli as you wish!

A pilau is a very versatile dish - and this one is no exception. Cumin, poppy seeds and lime leaves add a breadth of flavour here - add chopped chillies, cooked vegetables, fish, chicken or meat as you wish towards the end of cooking. I added some left over chicken from Chicken Fillets with...
This ‘en papillote’ recipe is very easy to make. The marinade ensures the chicken is super tender and succulent. The surprising and delicious effect here is the combination of earthy cumin and perfumed lime leaves, A harmonious combination of low notes and high notes. Its worth noting that this...
I have posted chutney recipes before, but this is the first to have cumin. It's fun to discover what happens when a recipe challenge inspires you.
I decided not to toast the cumin seeds, and to grind them roughly (rather than reducing them to a powder) because I wanted the sharper flavor to...
The focus of this recipe is low sodium. By using Swanson Low Sodium broth, I am able to create a bowl of chicken soup with less than 200mg of salt. Best of all, by using a generous amount of whole cumin seeds, this recipe explodes with flavor. The carrots and tomatoes give the soup a nice...

These koftas use both ground and whole cumin seeds and the taste of cumin is very much in the foreground. The recipe also uses a lot of coriander (cilantro) so its a great way to use up that wilting bunch of coriander lingering in the fridge. The coriander brightens the earthy taste of the...
Don’t be scared: remember, sushi can be cooked, too (I think it’s an unspoken rule of this forum that we shouldn’t post recipes that can potentially put someone in the hospital).
This might just be the most fun I’ve had in a very long time making a recipe. And, believe it or not, it wasn’t that...
