Bhuna Jeera Powder | Roasted Cumin Powder
Bhuna Jeera Powder or Roasted Cumin Powder adds a earthy, warming and aromatic character to food and a must in every Indian pantry.
In a large pan or a wok add the Jeera.
Slowly roast it on slow until it turns dark golden brown all over.
Be careful not to over do and burn it.
Let it cool and powder it in a grinder or mortar and pestle.
Store in a clean and sterile glass Jar tightly sealed.
The powder stays fresh for a few months.
Aroma of fresh powder is more better than the ones stored for long duration. So better to make it in small batches.
Needless to say when you make any masala's everything should be sterile and clean from jar's to pan.
No water near by, always work with clean and dry hands.
