Natco Kalwanji seeds
Often mistakenly called "onion seeds" in Indian cooking, Nigella seeds or Kalwonji are small black seeds with a mild and peppery flavour. Used in curry mixes and sprinkled on Indian breads. Often sprinkled on potatoes and buttered vegetable dishes. The seeds of "Love-in-a-mist" give a peppery warmth when sprinkled onto naan breads. The oil from Nigella seeds is deeply prized by Muslims for its beneficial health properties.
Culinary Uses: Nigella is used in India and the Middle East as a spice and condiment and occasionally in Europe as both a pepper substitute and a spice. It is widely used in Indian cuisines, particularly in mildly braised lamb dishes such as korma. It is also added to vegetable and dhal dishes as well as in chutneys. The seeds are sprinkled on to naan bread before baking. Nigella is an ingredient of some garam masalas and is one of the five spices in panch phoran. In the Middle East nigella is added to bread dough.
