Black cumin is a plant found throughout Turkey, Syria, and parts of Iraq that produces gorgeous yet delicate flowers. The raw seeds have a sharp, peppery aroma which reflects their flavour, but their taste is also onion-like, bitter and complex, making them a really interesting option to consider in your cooking.
Black nigella seeds are usually lightly toasted to add flavour to bread or curry dishes. Some people also eat the seeds raw or mix them with honey or water. They can also be added to oatmeal, smoothies or yogurt.
Nigella seeds have many health benefits. They carry antioxidant properties helping with several inflammation issues, especially on the skin. Nigella seeds also have an antihistamine element and can aid in assisting with sore throats. A mixture of ginger and nigella seed powder is said to help cure vomiting!
