Traveling in India has led me to discover the wonders of Nigella Sative - Also known as Black Caraway.
Meeting with locals, I learned about the long history of these seeds in Indian cuisine and its use in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Its pungent, earthy aroma and warm, slightly bitter taste adds a distinctive flavor to any dish.
Black caraway seeds are planted and collected in several parts of India, making the nation the world's biggest producer of these seeds.
In order to protect the environment and maintain the high quality of their black caraway seeds, farmers in India employ only organic fertilizers and non-chemical insect management.
Sowing black caraway seeds in the winter allows for a summer harvest. Plants up to 18 inches tall produce the seeds, and their summer blooms have white or light blue blossoms.
After flowering, the plants' seed pods become desiccated and brown. After being extracted from their pods, the seeds are collected.
Indian, Middle Eastern, and North African cuisines all make use of black caraway seeds. They are often used to improve the taste and scent of baked goods, curries, and vegetable meals.
Traditional medicine also makes use of black caraway seeds for their possible therapeutic effects. They may be used to treat gastrointestinal disorders, respiratory troubles, and skin ailments thanks to their purported anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial characteristics.
