Nirav Onion (Kalonji, Nigella) Seeds - 7 oz
Black onion seeds, kalonji, are tiny, tear-drop shaped seeds of a small herb plant. Their dusty jet black color and earthy, distinct onion flavor is an essential part to Panch Poran, a Bengali spice mixture. Its crunchy texture is sprinkled over soft tandoor-baked breads, such as naan, as is done in Northern India. Its therapeutic powers include: cleansing of toxins in the blood, helping to stimulate the liver, and used as a paste to clear skin blemishes.
