Often times the roasted cumin powder is used as a quick sprinkle in very little amount on salads, curries, soups and condiments. There is nothing fancy about it, but dry roasting the everyday cumin brings in a lovely smoky flavor which is not usually found in the regular cumin or powdered cumin.
Roasted Cumin Powder
- 2 Tablespoons Cumin Seeds
In a pan add the cumin seeds and roast at medium heat till they are a darker shade of brown and fragrant. Please watch and do not allow the seeds to turn dark brown. Immediately remove from heat and let it cool.
Grind into fine powder.
This can be stored in the airtight containers for a couple of months.[I grind it in the dry coffee grinder. It can also be done with a rolling pin on cutting board].
