  • A tiny black triangular seed.
  • Bitter and peppery flavour.
  • Kalonji (also known as Nigella seeds, Black Onion Seeds).
  • Common in Indian cuisine.
  • 100g bag.

Black onion seeds are used widely in Indian cuisine, commonly recognisable in naan breads, oil-based pickles and the spice blendpanch puren.

Directions

As with many spices, the flavour of kalonji seeds is enhanced by roasting for 1-2 minutes in a hot pan. If making naan bread, add to the dough mix before forming the naan and placing in a very hot oven.

 

Flavour and aroma aside, the tiny black seed comes with a whole lot of health benefits. It’s loaded with trace elements, vitamins, crystalline nigellone, amino acids, saponin, crude fiber, proteins and fatty acids like linolenic and oleic acids, volatile oils, alkaloids, iron, sodium, potassium and calcium. It keeps your heart healthy, addresses breathing problem, lubricates your joints, and is known to have anti-carcinogenic properties.
