Tumeric vs. cumin

Fida | Oct 3, 2007 05:05 PM

There's a small discount sundries place (9 East 39th in NYC, if you're in the neighborhood) that by some fluke, has a few Spice Island spices on sale. They don't have curry powder - I use small amounts of mild curry as a sort of enhancer - but they do have tumeric and cumin, which I know are used in curry.

Can I use either one of them instead of buying the usual curry blend? I have no idea what they taste like separately.
