Nigella (Nigella satvia) is sometimes called charnushka, "black caraway" (for its usage in Jewish rye breads) and "black onion seed," but there is no botanical relation between it and either of these plants. Nigella is a herbaceous annual of the buttercup family. The plant's white flowers with blue veins yield a seed capsule with five compartments each topped by a spike. The compartments open when dried to disperse the seeds.

Nigella is native to Western Asia, the Middle East and Southern Europe. Its seeds are very small, black in color with an oregano-like aroma (when rubbed) and a slightly peppery flavor. Nigella is used extensively in India as a spice and to flavor breads in the Middle East.

It is very versatile and can be used to add an exotic flavor and crunchy texture to almost any vegetable dish. Try it on buttered cabbage, zucchini and sweet potatoes, or rub the seeds into steaks and chicken before grilling.

Why Buy Your Spices at Silver Cloud Estates?

Why buy spices online when they are so readily available at your local store? The answer is quality and price. The spices sold at your local store are often a year or two old. As spices age, they loose much of their flavor. Silver Cloud's spices are always fresh, never old. Our products are also an excellent value. When you need spices, click on Silver Cloud Estates for the freshest products at great prices.
