Cumin White (Zeera Safaid, Safaid Zeera) زیرہ سفید
The white cumin seeds/Zeera Safaid (زیرہ سفید, سفید زیرہ) are an aromatic spice with a distinctive bitter flavor and strong, warm aroma due to its abundant oil content. Cumin "seeds" are actually the small dried fruit of an annual plant in the parsley family and it is known as Cuminum Cyminum. Native to the Mediterranean, cumin is hotter to the taste, lighter in color, and larger than caraway, another spice it's sometimes confused with.
Cumin is ayurvedically known to aid digestion, dispel flatulence, and is effective when used as a poultice in relieving aches and pains. Cumin steeped with honey will dispel colds, fevers and sore throats.
