Roasted cumin powder, also known as bhuna jeera powder has a lot of cullinary uses as well as it has medicinal uses with it’s amazing properties.
I have a range of spice powders in my fridge always. Since most of my everyday cooking is south Indian, I wont be using these everyday yet I need once in a while. The climatic condition and my storage at times never let these powder stay fresh, so I dedicate a rack in my fridge for these masala powders. I have shared a click of it in my Instagram stories a few years back.
One such powder which is very handy for me is this roasted cumin seeds powder/ bhuna jeera as it is commonly known among the north part of India.
