Our Nigella Sativa seeds are the highest quality seeds on the market.
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. Besides the unusual taste, the seeds are carminative, analgesic, antifungal, antispasmodic, antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, antihypertensive, and anticholinergic.
Get the healing power of black cumin seeds by brewing 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 home remedy that you can use to transform your health and your cuisine.
