Good recipe. Thanks. Black cumin seed is also called as Nigella Sativa. It have multi-vitamin, multi-mineral properties which aid healthy skin, lustrous hair and shining strong nails. It also cures mouth ulcerations, bad breath, cures pain from insect or animal bites etc. Black seed extract oil is an excellent flavouring for many dishes.

Thanks Padma, I did this today. Little time consuming process; but worth cooking. I think we could add 1/2 tbsp of Garam Masala Powder instead of 1..... But still Love it...

Cheers
