Flavour
Jeere Cress is characterized by the greyish bulb on the cress. The delicately cumin-flavoured seed husk gives the cress an appealing taste. The delicate cumin flavour of this cress makes it easier to flavour dishes than with cumin spice. Cumin is often used in Indian, Asian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Portuguese, and Spanish cuisine. It is a pleasant and natural flavour enhancer and makes an excellent addition to breads, biscuits, cakes, curries, young goat's cheese, mozzarella, and sauerkraut.

Origin
Cumin seeds have a long history in Europe and were used as a flavour enhancer in many different types of dishes. The Romans used to grind the cumin seeds into a powder and used it as you would use pepper, while the Greeks placed it on the table in its own vessel as we would put salt and pepper on our modern tables.
