Cumin In Hindi
Cumin is the dried seed of the herb Cuminum cyminum, a member of the parsley family. The cumin plant grows to 30–50 cm (12–20 in) tall and is harvested by hand. Each branch has two to three sub-branches. All the branches attain the same height, therefore the plant has a uniform canopy. The stem is colored grey or dark green.
