PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Nigella Seeds - Kalonji - Black Cumin - 80g per Pack - 1, 2, 5 Pack(s) INFORMATION: The Turkish name corek otu literally means "bun's herb" from its use in flavouring the corek buns. Such braided-dough buns are widespread in the cuisines of Turkey and its neighbours. The seeds of Nigella sativa, known as kalonji, black cumin (although black cumin may also refer to Bunium persicum), black onion seed, onion seed or just nigella, are used as a spice in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines. The dry-roasted nigella seeds flavor curries, vegetables and pulses. The black seeds taste like a combination of onions, black pepper and oregano, and have a bitterness to them like mustard seeds. It can be used as a "pepper" in recipes with pod fruit, vegetables, salads and poultry. In English, Nigella sativa seed is variously called fennel flower, nutmeg flower, black caraway, Roman coriander and black cumin. Nigella sativa has a pungent bitter taste and smell. It is used primarily in confectionery and liquors. Peshawari naan is, as a rule, topped with kalonji seeds. Nigella is also used in Armenian string cheese, a braided string cheese called majdouleh or majdouli in the Middle East.
