Spice up your January with nigella seeds

Chef Alice

These little black seeds are one of my all-time favourite ingredients. They are punchy little things – similar, but not the same as, black onion seeds. They come from the buttercup family and have an aromatic scent.

Nigella seeds areĀ used widely in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking. You may have come across them baked into naan breads and in chutneys. I like to use them as a garnish for curries, adding instant drama and pockets of flavour. We include them in a carrot and coriander slaw in our Harissa Halloumi sandwich and in other dishes like our Coconut Egg Curry.

They’re also beautiful over our Indian Sweet Potato Chips and Beans
