Substitute for cumin seeds
Is cumin powder a reasonable substitute for a recipe that calls for crushed cumin seeds?
Should be just fine, but you may need to adjust amounts....I'd start with less powder than the recipe calls for.
Yes, certainly reasonable. Depending on what you're making, you may want to use less powder than the amount of seeds called for.
Yep, it's fine. I agree that you probably want to use a little less of the ground than you would of whole seeds. Also, if the recipe calls for you to toast the seeds in a dry pan, with ground cumin I would either skip that step or heat the cumin in a little oil for a few seconds.
