Cumin

Cumin (sometimes spelt cummin) is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae, native from the east Mediterranean to East India. A folk etymology connects the word with the Persian city Kerman where, the story goes, most of ancient Persia's cumin was produced. For the Persians the expression "carrying cumin to Kerman" has the same meaning as the English language phrase "carrying coals to Newcastle". Kerman, locally called "Kermun", would have become "Kumun" and finally "cumin" in the European languages. In Northern India and Nepal, cumin is known as jeera or jira, while in Iran and Pakistan it is known as zeera; in Southern India it is called Jeerige or jeeragam or seeragam or jilakarra; in Sri Lanka it is known as duru, the white variety being suduru and the large variety, maduru; in Iran and Central Asia, cumin is known as zireh; in Turkey, cumin is known as kimyon; in northwestern China, cumin is known as ziran. In Arabic, it is known as al-kamuwn. Cumin is called kemun in Ethiopian, and is one of the ingredients in the spice mix berbere.
