  • 1 Cup Jeeera/Cumin Seeds


  • 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.
