Black Cumin Seeds, Nigella sativa
AKA Kalonji, Black cumin, Nigella seeds, black seed, black caraway, Roman coriander, or fennel flower,
Their aroma is similar to fennel and has a pungent flavour alike to nutmeg, with notes of oregano and black pepper. These characteristics contribute to why they make a great pair with savoury dishes. Black Cumin seeds are commonly roasted and ground as a spice, widely used in India and the Middle East to season curries, bread, and sweet confections. Several compounds, such as thymoquinone, carvacrol, t-anethole, and 4-terpineol, are responsible for nigellas' potent antioxidant properties and there is some scientific evidence to suggest that black cumin helps to boost the immune system.
