Black Onion Seeds (also known as Nigella) are not from onions. They actually come from a member of the buttercup family with blue or white flowers, these develop spiky-looking seed capsules which hold the seeds.
Black Onion Seeds are small triangular-shaped seeds with a matt black appearance. They have two flat sides and the other curved. They have little aroma, but a nutty, earthy and peppery taste with a crunchy texture.
