Cumin, also known as comino, is native to the Nile valley in Egypt. It is now cultivated in other hot regions of India, the Mediterranean and Northern Africa. Currently, more than 50% of all cumin comes from India. Cumin is one of the most consumed spices right after chiles and peppercorns and is a key ingredient in many curries and chili powders. The strong, earthy, slightly spicy flavor of cumin is available either freshly ground or as whole seeds. Roasting cumin seeds will bring the full aromatic flavor. Toasted cumin powder is a simple way to add extra flavor to chipotle chicken wings.
