Converting cumin seeds to ground cumin

A recipe calls for 3/4 teaspoon of cumin seeds. I only have ground cumin. How do I convert?
Is there a general rule I could use to convert seeds to ground spices, and the reverse? Thanks

    The ground will work measure for measure. I usually buy whole cumin seed and grind it myself. I have found that what ever i measure out whole when ground yields just about the same amount after it is ground.

      More important than exact measurements: Are you toasting the cumin before using it? Only toasting developes the true whole cumin flavor.

      Easy to do: in a dry heavy skillet, over medium heat toast the whole seeds till they give off an aroma (stirring or shaking the pan often). Cool and grind in a seed grinder.

      Commercial ground cumin is more likely to be oxidized (stale) but can be toasted for optimum flavor as well. Just watch it so it doesn’t burn.
