In English, Nigella sativa seed is variously called Black cumin, fennel flower, nutmeg flower, Roman coriander, black seed, black caraway, or black onion seed. Other names used, sometimes misleadingly, are onion seed and black sesame, both of which are similar-looking but unrelated. The seeds are frequently referred to as black cumin (as in Bengali kalo jira), but this is also used for a different spice, Bunium persicum. The scientific name is a derivative of Latin niger "black". In English-speaking countries with large immigrant populations, it is also variously known as kalonji, kezah Hebrew קצח), chernushka (Russian), çörek otu (Turkish), habbat albarakah.
Usage:Nigella sativa has a pungent bitter taste. It is used primarily in candies and liquors. The variety of naan bread called Peshawari naan is as a rule topped with kalonji seeds. Product usage are not tested and approved by USFDA. Products are suggestions by natural health practioner, please consult your doctor.
