If a recipe calls for cumin seeds, does it matter if i use ground cumin instead?

i dont want to buy the seeds when i already have a jar of ground, cos its just for one recipe
@ twiggy – its an indian dish called Rajmak Lababdar. Its mainly kidney beans and tomatoes and uses loads of spices.

    You can, but ground seeds will have a stronger flavour

    No you can use ground cumin it will work just as well maybe even better. Because eating recipes with seed sometimes when you eat a seed it is to overpowering flavor wise.

    Yeah unless it is like a bread or a cracker that you need the texture for its fine. I made spritz cookies with regular sugar than powdered and they turned out great!

    don’t use a lot. add a little at a time until it tastes to your liking. If you add too much cumin, it will overpower all other flavors.

    No it doesnt matter at all, its still the same taste

    Yes of course u can use cumin powder in Rajmah (red Kidney beans). It makes no difference. but do not put the amount as it describe in recipe for whole cumin. Sioux already mentioned above that it has strong flavour.
    1teaspoon of cumin seeds = 3/4 teaspoon (three quarters tsp of cumin powder).
    Add cumin powder when u add other spices because it can burn if u add it with onions in hot oil.
