Nigella Seeds

Anyone know where I can get them? Organic, if possible? (Typically used on naan bread and in salads)

I see The Spice Trader has them but I find they are very expensive and I am rarely down on Queen St W.

  1. Any place that carries Indian staples ought to have them, the Hindi name is Kalonji, might also be labeled as black cumin or black onion seeds (they are actually neither cumin or onion but that doesn't seem to matter).

      +1. I get mine from Lebanese grocers in Miss. and Indian shops in Brampton. Spice Trader ain't the place for nigella or freshness at those prices.

        Can you be more specific please? Names? Addresses?

    2. Iqbal, just off Overlea Blvd. I doubt they're organic.
