Afghan Black Cumin Recipes - Rumi Spice

Black cumin seeds are incredibly versatile and can easily be incorporated in a number of dishes, including Indian and South Asian dishes. With such popularity in the kitchen, it only made sense to add cumin spice to our family of Rumi Spice products. Fact: After black pepper, cumin is the most-used spice on Earth.

Not only can you enjoy our Afghan Black Cumin on its own, but you can also enjoy our three Afghan Black Cumin spice blends:

  • Southwest Chili Cumin Spice Blend
  • Ethiopian Berbere Cumin Spice Blend
  • Mexican Adobo Spice Blend

  • Learn more about our newest set of Afghan Black Cumin Spice Blends below and see how you can incorporate them into your next meal with some savory recipe ideas.

    Southwest Chili Black Cumin Spice Blend

    Our Southwest Chili Cumin Spice Blend is comprised of an array of savory Southwest spices including: Ancho chile, black pepper, cayenne, garlic, Guajillo Chile, Mexican Oregano, onion, Rumi Black Cumin and smoked paprika.

    Although Southwest seasoning can be paired with almost anything, Southwest seasoning pairs perfectly with rancher staples like beef, chicken and cheese and produce native to the Americas like chili peppers, corn and tomatoes.

    Ethiopian Berbere Black Cumin Spice Blend

    Berbere is the backbone to Ethiopian cooking and consists of varied flavors from local herbs and spices like cardamom, cassia, cayenne, coriander, fenugreek, ginger, mace, Rumi Black Cumin, smoked paprika and Urfa Chile.

    Berbere can be used in a variety of ways including dry rubs for meat and a seasoning for grains, lentils and stews. It can even be used as a tableside condiment. (Who needs ketchup when you have berbere). However, berbere is most commonly used in stews, which are then accompanied with a side of spongy flatbread called injera.

    Cooking with berbere is easier than you think. Try this recipe for Berbere Chicken with Ethiopian Lentils from Feasting at Home. Feeling fishy? Try this Berbere Spiced Salmon from Plated.

    Mexican Adobo is an all purpose set of seasoning and spices that can be used in just about anything including beans, beef, fish, pork, poultry, rice, sauces, stews and vegetables.

    A fusion of colonial and indigenous influences, Mexican Adobo marries together traditional Spanish spices and indigenous ingredients like chilies and tomatoes. Our Mexican Adobo Black Cumin Spice Blend combines ingredients like black pepper, cayenne, garlic, Mexican oregano, onion and Rumi Black Cumin.
