Charnushka Seeds

Kalonji is also known as nigella, black caraway, black onion seed, and charnushka. You will find it on Middle Eastern breads and crackers and sprinkled on Indian and Bengali vegetable dishes. These tiny seeds add a gentle, earthy flavor that falls somewhere between cumin and thyme.

Details

Charnushka is a flavorful black seed 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. Nigella sativa is commonly found as an ingredient in curry and garam masala recipes from India, where it is known as Kolonji. Ingredients: Charnushka seeds.

Tasty and Healthy

Add to green beans before roasting in the oven. This is a spice for both flavor and health. Health benefits are greater when the spice is heated. A subtle flavor but easily detected on the palate. Once charnuska seeds are in your pantry, you will search for more recipes to use them!

Great new flavor

I wanted to bake a bread recipe that required nigella/charnushka seeds. I'd never heard of them before but was so pleased to find them at the spice house. They have a wonderful and unique flavor, and now I have a new favorite bread. Spice House to the rescue!

I love this for so many foods.

Adding charnushka seeds to rice along with green peas---Mmm! And it's so pretty.

Brings back memories

My Grandmother use to make a Polish cheese bread when I was a kid, I tried to make it, but could never find the black seeds that she put on top, nor did I know what they were called. I’ve been asking people for years, nobody seemed to know what I was talking about. I came across a bakery in Chicago (now closed) that made a cheese bread, and had the seeds, and I asked them what they were, he told me, and about five or more years have gone, and I couldn’t remember exactly what they were called exactly.
I googled what I thought it was, I had no idea of the spelling, came across your website, found what I thought they were, ordered them, and low and behold, they were the same seeds that my Grandma used 50 years ago, I always remembered that taste! Thank you, and thank you for the fast free shipping too!
