Hi abc!! Shahjeera is same as black cumin. This is different from regular cumin from its aroma. This is mostly used in gravy curries and masala rices. This is a little thinner than regular cumin.

Shahjeera are called 'caraway seeds' in english. Its usually used while making biryani dishes which are rich in flavor. For the usual day to day cooking, regular jeera or cumin is used.
