There is a famous saying that cumin is in the camel's mouth. As it is called in English, A Drop in the Ocean. It means much less than required. But do not make the mistake of taking it lightly as a spice crop because this small looking cumin (jeera) contains great qualities. That is why cumin holds an important place among spice crops. In Sanskrit it is called Jirak while its botanical name is Cuminum Cyminum. The seed of this organic plant is called cumin. However, cumin is used in many dishes including all types of vegetables and pulses. The most important thing is that it not only enhances the taste of your food but is also very beneficial for health.
If cultivated in a proper way, it can yield better production and earn good profits. More than 80% of the cumin crop in India is grown in Gujarat & Rajasthan. In Rajasthan, about 28% of the country's total production of cumin is produced.
