Nigella seed is a black, drop-shaped seed that is traditionally used as a spice in India. Nigella seed comes from the seeds of the flowering plant Nigella sativa, which is found throughout Turkey, Syria, and parts of Iraq. Nigella is some times referred to by other names, such as black cumin, black onion seed, and black sesame seed. Nigella seeds have a strong aroma and a flavor profile that has notes of onion, oregano, and black pepper. The perception of these flavors can differ from person to person, and some may taste a slightly nutty flavor as well.
