What is Cumin Powder?

As the name suggests, the powder is made from Cumin seeds and it can also be called Ground Cumin or Jeera Powder. It is a staple pantry ingredient in many cuisines. The taste is rich and hearty, earthy and warm with a hint of citrus. Cumin has the possibility to add depth to any dish. If you find yourself without anyCumin in your pantry and you need a substitute fast, try a similar amount of chili powder, which is a spice similar to Cumin. Cumin is, after all, one of the dominant flavors in chili powder—plus you’ll get a bit of chili pepper and oregano in the mix.

Olive Oil

This soup also contains olive oil which is a must have in many chef’s kitchens across the world. 

Adding olive oil into your dish is sure to guarantee quality of flavor in your dishes. The oil is an extremely versatile cooking ingredient and can be used in a multitude of ways.
