What is the difference between cumin and cumin?
Cumin and cumin are completely different spices, Cumin in Asia is called cumin, it is always put in pilaf, lagman, this spice gives a specific taste to these dishes. Cumin has longer seeds than cumin. Caraway is often put in sauerkraut, bread, in the Baltics, I ate cheese with caraway seeds.
Cumin and cumin are completely different spices, they differ in taste, aroma and purpose. Of course, outwardly they are similar in that both are small seeds. But I don't see any similarities anymore. Cumin has a rather mild taste and aroma, not aggressive and even more a little rich. It is often added to baked goods, not always, of course, to sweet ones, but still. With the test, it is not bad. I still fry fish in it, but this is not for everybody's taste. But cumin (in another way - zira) is a very strong spice, in the sense that it is very vividly felt in the dish and is definitely associated with pilaf. That is, I have never seen her put anywhere else at all. I would have used it only with mutton kebabs. Because wherever you put the cumin, it will still smell of pilaf. Well, this is for me.
