  • The smell of cumin is distinctive; it can be described as strong and bitter and is usually loved or hated.
  • Cumin has a warm, somewhat bitter taste.
  • It is available whole as seeds, or crushed to a powder, which is often blended with ground coriander to form a widely used mixture called ‘dhana-jeera’.
