Toasted Cumin Powder

Suvir Saran's web exclusive recipe

January 3, 2011

1. Place 1/2 cup cumin seeds in a large skillet over medium-high  heat. Shake the skillet occasionally until the cumin becomes a toasty brown color and starts to smoke (about 4 to 5 minutes).

2. Place the toasted cumin seeds to a bowl to cool. Once cooled, grind the seeds in a herb grinder or coffee mill until powder fine. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 months.


Makes about 1/2 cup
