BLACK SEEDS / NIGELLA SATIVA – 100G
These are the highest quality nigella sativa seeds. These little seeds pack a powerful punch, both in taste and for enhancing digestion, immunity and general health.
Black cumin seeds, botanically known as Nigella sativa, are a common ingredient in Indian, Persian and Middle Eastern cuisines. They have been used for centuries as a functional food, spice, food preservative and decoration, and to add a crunchy texture. The famous panch phoron is an Indian spice mix, with black seeds being one of the five ingredients.
The flavor is hard to pin down – being nutty, pungent, slightly bitter, and peppery. Low-quality seeds, however, taste unpleasant.
Added to soups, curries, pilafs, dahl, sauces, pickles, bread, vegetables, smoothies, salads, cheese, pastries, naan, and Turkish borek, these little spice grains impart an exotic and complex taste sensation to any dish.
Brew them for black cumin tea, toasting them slightly and sprinkling them on your food as a condiment or crushing them and mixing them with royal jelly or honey as a spread for toast.
Black cumin seeds are an ancient and powerful dietary supplement that you can use to support your health and transform your cuisine.
