Powdered cumin seed is widely used in Latin American, African, Asian and Mediterranean cooking. In fact, in some parts of the world it rarely sees the inside of a spice cabinet. In Morocco, for instance, it's as common to see cumin kept on the table as it salt and pepper in the west.

Add powdered cumin to soups, baked goods, curries, chili and rice and bean dishes.

cumin seed

Cumin is a member of the parsley family and native to India and the eastern Mediterranean. Both the whole and ground seed is widely used in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking as well as in Mexican cuisine. In Morocco, the spice is kept in a small container at the table like salt and pepper so that individuals can season their food to taste

Powdered cumin tends to bring out the sweetness of other foods in a recipe, although remember to observe the wisdom of the “less is more” philosophy. Try adding some to scrambled eggs, rice, hummus and potatoes.
