Nigella Seeds


Nigella sativa has a pungent bitter taste and a faint smell of strawberries. It is used primarily in confectionary and liquors.

It is commonly used in Indian cuisine in naan breads. The variety of Pakistani naan bread called Peshawari naan is as a rule topped with kalonji seeds.

In herbal medicine, Nigella sativa has antihypertensive, carminative, and anthelmintic properties.[citation needed] They are eaten by elephants to aid digestion
