Cumin seeds

Cumin seeds
This one is used mostly with vegetarian dishes.. hence I call it the vegetarian jeerakam... This one helps prevent gas and so is part of most bean recipes... If the recipe does not add it, my dad used to ensure that we all ate a pinch of this one after the meal...We even get a sugar coated version of this one called 'jeeraka mithai'.. they were really cute, looking like tiny eggs :)

Also known as:
Jeerakam in Malayalam
