Nigella seeds are one of the oldest recorded spices. Part of the Ranunculaceous family of flowering annual plants, Nigella Sativa is found growing in many parts of the world. These small black tear-drop shaped seeds are often called black cumin or black onion seeds but are not at all related to either of these. You may also find it in recipes as Chamushka or Kalonji. Organically certified, these seeds are grown and processed without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic chemicals or fertilisers, and preservatives. The raw seeds have a slightly peppery toasted onion flavour that is a little bit bitter. When dry roasted (as they are most often used) the flavour becomes sweeter. Nigella seeds are extremely versatile and used in many cuisines including Indian, African and Middle Eastern.
