Cumin seeds, Black

The rare and more expensive black cumin seeds are smaller and thinner in appearance and they are sweeter, more nutty & generally less pungent & more delicate than regular cumin seeds. Use in salads where it works well with coriander & lemon juice.  Also good in curries especially kormas, slow cooked foods, stir frys, savoury baked goods & rice dishes like biryani.  In Indian recipes it may be referred to as ‘kala jeera’.  Whole cumin seeds will keep for about 3 years and is not to be confused with Nigella seeds which is popular in the Middle East.
