Cumin powder

Sometimes also spelt Cummin, cuminum or cyminum. But also known commonly as Jeera powder, not to be confused with caraway as the seeds look similar. The seeds of the plant are dried and in the case of the powder crushed. The main plant (cuminum cyminum) is a member of the parley family although has quite a strong and distinctive flavour. Light brown in colour.
