Cumin (Indian name Jeera) is a pungent spice used in many traditional Indian dishes.
It is a staple of most curry spice mixes (though not all) and lends itself many dishes of other countries. Its supposed medicinal qualities are numerous, although in today’s western medicine it is used largely only in veterinary medicine.
Its alleged health indications in the human are as an alleviant for stomach upsets and flatulence and in pregnancy to aid lactation and to reduce morning sickness.
