      BLACK CUMMIN INAITWA KAMNI ASWEDI Ni Arabic word lakini watu wengi wanaifahamu kwa jina hilo na wahindi wanaiita Kari Jiri.

    Hi

    Napendekeza ubadilishe jina la kiswahili la Cumin. Jina sahihi la kiswahili ni uzile au bizari nzima siyo bizari ya pilau.

      Jina la ukweli ni “Jira”. Nimeweka binzari ya pilau maana uswahilini wengi wanatumia hilo jina. Lakini kiukweli ni jira.

        Einstein,
        Those two spices are not in our old recipes. THey have been introduced in Tanzania but I am not sure if the Tanzania linguist have given a name for that yet as I can not find anywhere. And many Tanzanian I know in Tanzania use the same English words, even in store.
        I am sorry for that.
