Description

Organic Nigella Seeds are also known as black cumin, black caraway or black seed.

If it’s good enough for Tutankhamun, it’s good enough for us.  These ancient seeds were found in the tombs of Pharaohs because they were so coveted. Organic Nigella Seeds are native to the Mediterranean region and in Western Asian countries including India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

These fragrant seeds could be described as a mixture between oregano and black pepper.  They are a popular ingredient in bread recipes, especially as a topping on flatbreads such as naan.  These pungent black seeds are commonly used in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine.

Medicinal use of these ancient seeds can be traced back for several centuries and their oil is considered a health elixir.  They are a great topping for salad or rice, adding a splash of colour and flavour.
