        Cumin is scientifically known as the Cuminum cyminum L. is the greyish brown color fruit of the Piaceae or Umbelliferae, which belongs to the family of small, slender, aromatic, flowering herbs/plants. Since ages, many traditional communities have been using cumin seeds as a perennial herb that adds substantial delicacy in everyday meals. The popularity of cumin was somewhat because of its peppery flavor that is a suitable substitute for black pepper, which is quite expensive and difficult to obtain. The cumin has a slight pungency and warm aromatic smell that gives a unique flavor in vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, snacks, and fast foods. Also, due to several health benefits, it is used as natural remedies and herbal medicine. India is the highest cumin producing and consuming nation. The western states of India, viz., Gujarat and Rajasthan, account for the major cumin production in the country. Like other spices, it too has preservative properties having a shelf life of 24 months. The cumin plants get fully grown and are usually harvested within 4 to 5 months of sowing.

        The cumin plants are matured when its flowers get dried up and fall on the ground. The farm laborers harvest the cumin plants by cutting them using sickles or harvesting machine. These plants are then stacked up on a clean floor and left for sun drying for about a week or two. The cumin seeds are separated by light beating the dried plant’s stem with sticks. The obtained cumin contains some dry leaves, small branches, and plant dust or its broken components. Therefore, a cumin huller or husker machine is used for hollering the cumin to remove the leaves/dust and other unwanted parts. The segregated cumin is sorted by following the sorting process to obtain the various quality of cumin seeds depending upon their purity. Thereafter, it is processed via the metal detector for the presence of any metallic impurities. Finally, the purest cumin seeds are either sent for final packaging or for obtaining the powdered cumin variant. These cumin seeds are also known as Jeera across a world.
