Mikekey *


An Indian spice blend used to flavor vegetables or rice dishes. This spice mix is left in seed form, instead of ground. Put it in the water your are using to steam carrots or cauliflower for a nice flavor. Nigella seed can be found in spice shops. It is sometime called black onion seed. "Fry" the mixture in a little oil to release flavors, or "dry" fry until aroma is released and then use in your recipe. All of these seeds can be found in Indian markets or in some larger food stores with ethnic sections or bulk foods.
