Jeera Powder has a strong aroma and flavour and is also known as ground cumin or jeera powder. It is made from Ground Cumin Seeds. One of the main ingredients in Indian food is either blended in curry powder or added whilst cooking with other ingredients. Cumin powder can also be used as a marinade or spice rub by blending with a little oil to form a paste. It is also a popular powder in afro Caribbean food and used in Thai cooking.
Jeera is rich in Vitamin E and hence it has anti-ageing properties.
