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.
