Charnushka is a flavorful black seed that is also known as Black Cumin, Black Onion seed, or Black Caraway seed. It is typically used in Jewish rye bread and flatbreads, and also in certain savory pastries and cheeses. Charnushka is often mixed together with other seeds, such as mustard, fennel, cumin, and fenugreek, to create a blend popular in Bengali beans and veggie dishes known as panch phoron. This seed is commonly found as an ingredient in curry and garam masala recipes from India, where it is known as Kolonji.
