My Spice Box
I am originally from Mauritius, we grew up with home remedies. Cumin has many health benefits, it contains vitamin E, making it good for the skin and hair. It is good for asthma, anaemia, immunity and cancer. For digestion, add half a teaspoon of cumin powder to a yoghurt drink and take after meals.
