Tiny and black, Nigella seeds are piquant and big on flavor with an oregano-like quality with herbaceous notes, a slight bitterness and a warm, toasted-onion flavor.
Wonderful in savory pastries, rice dishes, curries, vegetable dishes and pickles. Nigella seeds also add great texture when sprinkled whole over baked goods or when added to dough.
Give them a toast in a dry skillet, and wait for them to pop to release their aromatic properties. Tasty nigella seeds can be sprinkled over vegetables and stir-fries, and give a satisfying crunch to your salads. They are also great to add to whole salads, sauces and even soups in the last minute just before serving.
