For those that enjoy an Indian curry every now and then, there was a likely chance that cumin was an ingredient. Native to India, as well as Mexico and the Middle East, cumin is a seed of a plant that comes from the parsley family. It’s often used in dishes for its peppery and slightly nutty notes. It is also particularly complementary to lamb. But not only can it be used in the kitchen, cumin is known to have medicinal properties, and can be used to treat upset stomachs.
