Kala jeera is a spice that is popular in Northern Indian cuisine. It is used to flavor meat and rice dishes, with a distinct rich, nutty taste. Before they are cooked, kala jeera seeds have a sharp, earthy, heavy scent. As they cook, however, the seeds develop a nutty flavor and scent that can greatly enhance the foods that they are cooked with. The seeds may be baked into breads, added to curry pastes and blends, or steamed with rice to give it a distinctive scent, especially in Northern Indian food.
