Cumin provides a key flavor to the cuisines of many cultures. It has a warm, earthy aroma and a peppery flavor with citrus notes. One of the most consumed spices after chiles and peppercorns, cumin is as a key ingredient in many curry and chili powders. Cumin seed is also used to season classic Dutch cheeses. It is most popular in Indian, Middle Eastern, African and Mexican cooking. In Indian cuisine, spices such as cumin and coriander are most often toasted whole in oil or clarified butter rather than used in a powder form. You can use the toasted cumin seeds whole, or you can bring out even more flavor by crushing them slightly in a mortar and pestle. Cumin seeds are also extremely rich in iron.
