Nigella seeds are a small and triangular exotic spice. The seeds are black and have a nutty sharp flavour and pungent aroma. Even tough they can be incorrectly called black sesame seeds or black onion seeds, these are completely different. They are widely used in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. They are most commonly used in Turkish bread and are used in the Indian five seed blend Panch Poran.
With a nutty, sharp flavour and a pungent aroma, Nigella Seeds are predominantly used in Turkish, Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines. Use as a finishing garnish for texture and flavour or to add a sharp, zesty flavour to your curries, sauces and stews.

Chilli Ancho means â€œwide chilliâ€ in Spanish and it is actually a dried Poblano pepper. They are a large dark purple sweet chilli that form the backbone of staple Mexican dishes such as tamales & red chilli beans.

Chipotle (chip-oat-lay) peppers are smoked, dried Jalapeño chillies. They appeared when the Aztecs used to add dried chilli to food as a preservation method. They have a rich smokey flavour, with nutty, leathery notes that blend well with strong flavours. Chipotle flavouring is widely used throughout Mexico, the United States and more recently in Australia. It can be used in soups, stews and casseroles. It also has a variety of health benefits to defend against intestinal diseases and aid in weight loss.
Curry leaves (also known as kadi patta) are the predominant flavour and aroma in Madras curry, as well as other popular Indian and Sri Lankan dishes. They have a delicate spicy citrus flavour and are incredibly aromatic.
Dahl is a mild curry made from dried lentils, peas, or beans, which have been made into a thick soup or stew. The spices are aromatic rather than hot and are added just before serving.

This is the go-to spice blend for any vegetarian or vegan cook. Its versatility is only limited by one’s imagination.
