Lotus - Cumin.jpg

What is Cumin

Did you know that cumin is a flowering plant? It is natively grown in the eastern Mediterranean region and east of India where the climate is hot and that is one of the requirements to grow a healthy cumin plant. Its seeds are similar to fennel. Cumin is commonly used in Indian dishes and Mexican cuisine. In Indian dishes, the seeds are added to hot oil before cooking so that the flavor infuses the oil and to the rest of the other ingredients. It works great not only in meaty and vegetable dishes but it also works well with soups and sauces. 

This spice also is Surinder's (Lotus' owner) favorite spice. It has a pungent aroma that enhances any dish and it is also considered an Ayurvedic medicine. It is also included in some of Lotus dishes such as Aloo Gobi, Lamb Rogan Josh, and curry dishes. 

Below are some of the benefits you can get from Surinder's favorite spice: 

  • Promotes proper digestion 
  • Has anti-cancer properties 
  • Helps control blood sugar 
  • Fights bacteria and parasites

Enjoy the benefits of not only the cumin seeds but also the other ayurvedic spices used in the Lotus Menu! Come to Lotus Cuisine of India in downtown San Rafael and Cafe Lotus in Fairfax. Lotus Market, our Indian grocery store also holds a wide variety of different ayurvedic spices, located just behind Lotus Cuisine of India.
