*Test Kitchen Tip:
To toast cumin seeds, place seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until cumin becomes fragrant, shaking skillet occasionally. (Avoid overcooking cumin seeds, which can make them bitter.) Remove from heat; allow to cool. Grind with a mortar and pestle or in a blender.
