As important to Mexican cuisine as it is to Indian, African and Middle Eastern, cuminum cyminum is one of the most widely used spices in the world. Used in curries, yogurt-based raitas, chile con carne, couscous, tagines, vegetable soups, marinades and spice rubs, just about anything can benefit from the deep nutty flavour and warm, earthy fragrance of cumin. Whether using it whole or ground, toasting cumin in a dry skillet just before using it enriches its flavour and fragrance enormously. Medicinally, cumin aids in the digestion of rich and spicy foods.
